Celebrate Chuck Taylor’s 122nd birthday at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center!
Lace-up your Chuck Taylor hightops and bounce over to the Indiana Historical Society for a day filled with free activities to celebrate Chuck Taylor and his basketball legacy in Indiana. Explore our newest exhibit, “Chuck Taylor All Star,” then share your own “Chuck” story with us through our story-sharing station. Shoot some hoops and make a piece of basketball memorabilia to take home. Activities are suitable for children aged 2 and older; bring the whole family to say “Happy Birthday” to Chuck!
Admission is free, but pre-registration on the IHS website is strongly encouraged.
