OCTOBER 3, 2020

This year’s GermanFest is going to look a little different from years past. For the health and safety of our guests, staff & vendors we are reimagining GermanFest as a German style farmers market. There will be German music and plenty of German beer in the Biergarten at the Rathskeller and we’re taking the always popular wiener dog races virtual for a spectacle that is not to be missed.

We’re also going to be offering a GermanFest @ Home kit. More info on that will be added very soon.

All proceeds from GermanFest benefit the maintenance and care of the Historic Athenaeum. Celebrate German-American Day with this unique family event.

Admission to the 2020 GermanFest is FREE!

Consider Lyft, Uber, walking, biking or public transportation!

We are located near the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, with a Pacers Bike Share at our front door.

IndyGo bus routes 3, 5, 10, 11, 17 and 21 all stop within one block of the Athenaeum.

There are BlueIndy self-serve electric cars available within a 5-minute walk.

Cars may pay to park at nearby paid meters, in one of the many lots around downtown or at The Murat Parking lot, just to the west, at Alabama and Michigan Streets.
