Indy Fan Gathering

When the world’s best motorcycle racers come to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Aug. 28-30, one of the most exciting motorcycle events associated with the Red Bull Indianapolis GP also will return. Motorcycles on Meridian, a gathering of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts, will take place from 7 p.m.-3 a.m. Friday, Aug. 28 and Saturday, Aug. 29 on South Meridian Street in downtown Indianapolis.

In 2008, a large gathering of motorcycles and riders descended upon downtown Indianapolis during the inaugural Red Bull Indianapolis GP weekend and parked along Meridian, creating a safe, festive environment for motorcycle enthusiasts.

For both nights of the event, South Meridian Street between South Street and Maryland Street will be open to motorcycle traffic only. Additional motorcycle parking will be available on the south half of Monument Circle, along the curbs of South Meridian Street between Monument Circle and Maryland Street. All motorcycles must enter from South Street moving north on Meridian Street.

The event is being organized by the Red Bull Indianapolis GP Local Organizing Committee– a group comprised of members from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Indianapolis Downtown, Inc., Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association, ABATE of Indiana, Department of Public Works, the Indiana War Memorial, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and multiple merchants located on South Meridian Street.

The event is free and open to everyone, riders and non-riders, to experience the motorcycle culture of Indianapolis. All parking garages in the area will be open and accessible.

ABATE of Indiana will assist motorcyclists with parking and also provide safe rides home for riders if necessary. Red Bull will provide live music and Red Bull product sampling.
