The IndyFringe Theatre Festival runs the length of Mass Ave, from Michigan Street, all the way to the Bottleworks District.

Parking in downtown can be complicated, and free parking is sparse. With that in mind, we have recommended three distinct, paid lots within close proximity to our theatres.

  • IndyFringe |  The Bottleworks District parking garage – 824 Massachusetts Avenue
  • The District Theatre |  Penrose building parking garage, access off of North Street
  • The Athenaeum |. Old National Center parking lot – Access off of North Street

At this time, vaccines and masks are suggested when adequate social distancing is not possible, but are not required for admission to the theatre.

Certain productions may ask for the front row of audience members to be masked, in which case masks will be provided.
