Course Entertainment

Perform for a Crowd of 35,000!

The OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon is one of the nation’s largest half-marathons. Known as The Greatest Spectacle in Running, the Indy Mini features 100 of the best entertainment groups and spirit squads lining the half marathon course. Selected entertainment acts will perform for 35,000 participants, volunteers, and spectators on the day of the Indy Mini.

Indy Mini participants cite course entertainment as one of the top reasons they return to the race year after year. From musicians to magicians, rock bands to dance groups, fitness squads to cloggers, and performances of all sorts, the fanfare that course entertainers bring to our participants is unlike anything else.

Applications for Course Entertainment will open in the coming months. Please contact to be contacted when the 2023 applications open.
