A popular summer series returns to downtown Indianapolis with a spectacular lineup of entertainers. The Indiana Historical Society (IHS) invites guests to the 2022 Concerts on the Canal season along with Free Admission Thursdays, June 2 through July 14.
All Concerts on the Canal performances are from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center, located at 450 W. Ohio St. in downtown Indianapolis.
The 2022 lineup is as follows:
Guests can purchase seating on the History Center’s Kruse Family Stardust Terrace in tables of eight ($80/$60 IHS members) or tables of four ($60/$40 IHS members). The Terrace is a smoke-free and pet-free zone. No seating will be permitted along the History Center entryways or the Terrace stairways. Free seating may be available outside the Terrace area.
In the event of inclement weather, the concert may be delayed or moved indoors to the Frank and Katrina Basile Theatre.
Food and cash bar service will be available from the Stardust Terrace Café by Jonathan Byrd’s — open at 5 p.m. Guests may also bring their own food and nonalcoholic beverages to the concerts. All alcohol must be purchased and consumed on site. No food or drink will be allowed at indoor concerts, and only registered guests may be accommodated.
Free parking at the History Center is on a first-come basis. Nearby street or garage parking is available for a fee. These procedures may be changed as a result of updated guidance from local government and health officials. The 2022 Concerts on the Canal series is supported by Total Restoration, with contributions from The Long Drink.
