Because every street deserves a festival.
IndyFringe now owns what used to be the Spring Street Alley, and because it is no longer a public thoroughfare, we have big plans. We want to give you the chance to be a part of Fringe History. We are kicking off our “Follow the Trailhead Road” brick engraving campaign. For $100, you, a loved one, or your company can be immortalized on our brand new alley. Just think, your name could have a landmark spot right outside the upcoming expansion to the building! Exciting, right?
All of the proceeds will go toward building the foyer of the Trailhead Cultural and Community Center - part of Phase II of our Capital Campaign. By purchasing a brick, you will literally be helping to build the future of IndyFringe! Each brick can be engraved with up to Three Lines of 13 Characters Each.
Get yours today! Dowload a printable order form here or you can purchase it quickly and safely through PayPal below or call 317-869-6660 for more information. Pay Pal purchasers will be contacted later to confirm character layout.
We did it.
After years of planning, it only took several weeks to completely renovate the old Spring Street alley. We now have a beautiful new brick pathway that fulfills the needs of the community while still maintaining the spirit of its historic past. The historic alleys that connect the neighborhoods are important to the history of Indianapolis. The bricks salvaged from our alley will be used to restore the alley which runs between Mass Avenue and St. Clair Street alongside the historic Indianapolis Firefighters Museum and Fallen Firefighters Memorial.
Together we have taken the first steps toward building the future of IndyFringe. Can you picture it? Our alley is absolutely stunning, but what the alley will lead to is even more important: The Trailhead will be a thriving community center for the Cultural Trail. Not only will the alley lead our patrons to a brand new venue, but it will also lead cyclists and runners to the ONLY publicly available restrooms along the Cultural Trail.
While we make the final fundraising push to build The Trailhead, we encourage you to come down and see the alley, but more importantly see shows. We are still bringing you a full line up of exciting productions year round. While we make some finishing touches to the alley, it will still remain closed for the time being. Parking will still be available at the Art Bank and in the lot to the South of the theatre.

BIG THINGS ARE HAPPENING.
We have officially broken ground on the reconstruction of the Spring Street Alley (see photo below). The Trailhead is beginning to take form, and we couldn't be happier! We will be posting more details in the weeks ahead through e-mails, social media, and on our website.
In the meantime, we would like to apologize for the parking inconvenience, as the alley will be unavailable for parking or through traffic. There is still plenty of parking on the 800 block of Mass Ave., on Fulton Street, and in the lot to the South of the IndyFringe Basile Theatre. Our neighbor across the street, The Art Bank Gallery has also generously offered our patrons the use of their parking lot.
Also please note that the two entrances at the back of the building are not open to the public during construction. Please use the front entrance only.
If you have any questions about parking or the alley project in general, please call 317.522.8099 or 317.869.6660.
