Broad Ripple Carnival

In the early 1900’s Broad Ripple Park was home to a premier amusement park complete with roller coaster, log ride, bumper cars, beach, petting zoo, carnival games and more!

Celebrate Broad Ripple Village with a 4-day festival, Aug. 8-11, featuring activities for the entire family.
