Spark!Fishers returns with weeklong celebration this summer

Family at Spark Fishers

April 11, 2023 (FISHERS, IND.) –The annual Spark!Fishers festival returns to Fishers’ Nickel Plate Cultural District this summer. Kicking off on Tuesday, June 20, and running through Saturday, June 24, the weeklong festival will offer different ways for the community to celebrate each day.  

“We are looking forward to welcoming Fishers residents to our spectacular annual tradition of local art, food, music and community. With a variety of activities over five days, Spark!Fishers provides an opportunity for all residents to engage in the experience,” said Fishers Parks Director, Marissa Deckert. “We are especially excited this year to be the first in Central Indiana to feature a customized drone show before our fireworks finale on Saturday night." 

The celebration will be packed full of family favorites and Independence Day traditions while showcasing what it means to be uniquely Fishers. All events, with the exception of the 5K Run/Walk, are free to attend, and no registration is required.   

New this year, participants will enjoy an exciting, redesigned parade route, as well as an aerial drone show to cap off the festivities on Saturday night.  The new, state-of-the-art drone show will feature over 300 drones in the sky and will replace the primary firework show this year, but residents can view Independence Day fireworks throughout the community on July 4 at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater (6 Municipal Drive), Cyntheanne Park (12383 Cyntheanne Road) and over Geist Reservoir.
