Indy Parks 2021 Summer Concert and Movie Series Lineup

Movies and music are returning to Indy Parks this summer.

Indy Parks is bringing back its Summer Concert and Movie Series, with 60 concerts and four movies planned across six parks this summer. 

From May through September, park goers can enjoy the sounds of jazz at Eagle Creek Park Beach or the eclectic styles of alternative rock in a new Alt Indy series at Garfield Park’s MacAllister Amphitheater. This year’s lineup features several local artists, including the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, Audiodacity and the Half Step Sisters. Family-favorite movies, including Moana and Aladdin (2019), will be shown on the multi-purpose field west of the Garfield Park Arts Center. All concerts are free unless marked with *** on the lineup below. For information on how to buy tickets for those shows, visit

In addition to these events, this summer will be the inaugural concert season at Taggart Memorial Amphitheater at Riverside Park. It will include shows every Thursday in August and September. Details of those events will be released soon.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, several health and safety precautions will be in effect this summer. Masks will be required to enjoy the shows, and visitors will be asked to social distance.

For more information about Indy Parks and the Summer Concert and Movie Series, visit or call (317) 327-PARK. Concert and movie details are also available at @IndyParksConcerts on Facebook.
