A Night Out in Sleepy Hollow

You are invited to join your neighbors and friends for an evening in Irving Circle Park, as we celebrate Halloween, in homage to Irving, with an evening highlighting authors, storytelling, and American artists of all mediums:

 

  •   Winning contest entrants will read their original spooky stories.

  •   Sally Perkins, a professional storyteller, will sweep the audience into a ghostly story of the     Headless Horseman.

  •   The Black Hat Society, a coven of neighborhood witches, will put the audience under their             dance performance spell.

  •   The Irvington Performing Arts Academy will present scenes from “Dracula.”

  •   Wrap up the evening with Scary Jazz by  Nick Tucker, sponsored by Coal Yard Coffee.

 

The Tie Dye Grill is grilling free hot dogs, Coal Yard Coffee is serving up warm beverages for a chilling October evening, and Bookmamas is generously donating awards for the winning entrants of the writing contest. This is an ideal night to finish painting your window for judging and to head on over to the park to grab a hot dog and a seat on a hay bale to enjoy the show, all brought to you by the immensely talented folks of Irvington!

 

If you ever long for the Halloween Festivals of days gone by, this is the event not to miss! This event is FREE to the public, though you are encouraged (but not required) to bring a canned good or dry good for the Gaia Works, Inc., food pantry, located in The Magic Candle.

 

We will see you there, along with Ichabod Crane and maybe even the Headless Horseman!

Fountain Square Art Festival

*Official Timeline* 
9am - 3pm | Masterpiece in a Day (registration ends at 11am) 
11am - 6pm | Fountain Square Art Fair
5pm | Art Parade
6pm | Awards

Since 2011, Art Squared has grown to become one of Indianapolis’ largest annual celebrations of the arts. Organized by the Fountain Square Arts Council, Art Squared is sponsored by the Fountain Square Merchants Association. What began has three art events under three separate organizations has now been unified into one amazing event. Art Squared. 

Art Squared includes three unique art events on one day: 
Fountain Square Art Fair | Masterpiece in a Day | Fountain Square Art Parade. 

The Fountain Square Art Fair is a festival marketplace for local artists to showcase their creative talents and display items for purchase. Vendor space is strictly reserved for local, Indiana-based artists and creators. 

Masterpiece in a Day is a day-long art and writing competition, where locals, professional artists, students, neighbors, and friends create works of art to be judged for cash prizes. It's free to participate and open to the public – just bring your favorite supplies and start creating. 

The Fountain Square Art Parade is a one-of-a-kind event where everyone is encouraged to become part of a moving work of art. Build a float, wear an outfit, make a statement. Or just watch the art move...and maybe even move you. The parade is free and open to all, and the rules are simple: participant works must be family-friendly and able to move along the entire parade route. It showcases contemporary artworks of all sizes and shapes that celebrates parades, street pageantry, and community.
