Chuck Taylor Family Day at the Indiana Historical Society Includes Free Admission

June 20, 2023

On Saturday, June 24, the Indiana Historical Society (IHS) is celebrating Chuck Taylor’s 122nd birthday with Chuck Taylor Family Day and free admission!

IHS invites guests to the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center, located at 450 W. Ohio St. in downtown Indianapolis, from 12 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 24 to take part in a day filled with activities to celebrate Chuck Taylor and his basketball legacy in Indiana.

Attendees are encouraged to explore the IHS exhibit, Chuck Taylor All Star; share their own Chucks stories through a story-sharing station; practice basketball drills; and make a piece of basketball memorabilia to take home.

Chuck Taylor Family Day activities include:

Share Your Story

Guests are invited to bring in a picture of themselves wearing their Chucks to create an interactive gallery wall. There will also be an option to write or draw your own story of why these shoes matter to you.

Craft Station

Guests will make their own “bouncing ball” art using a coffee filter as well as a wooden basketball ornament turned into a make-and-take keychain!

Free Throw Bonanza

At this station, guests challenge each other to a shoot-out using mini basketballs. This will be set up in a corner of Lilly Hall.

Activities are suitable for children ages 2 and older. Admission is free, but pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Visit to register.
