About the Event

The 500 Festival, a not-for-profit volunteer organization, was created in 1957 to organize civic events celebrating the greatest race in the world. Over the past 60+ years, the 500 Festival has grown to become one of the largest festivals in the nation.

Each year, 500,000 Hoosiers and visitors participated in festival activities throughout the month of May. Whether they were athletes running the Mini, fourth grade students participating in the Education Program, families enjoying the state’s largest festival for kids, or spectators being dazzled by one of the nation’s premier parades, they were there, celebrating the legacy.

500 Festival Pit Crew (30-60 volunteers)

We would love to get a group of volunteers together to make up one of our Pit Stations at the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. You and your group will pass out water to thirty Mini-Marathon participants as they run and walk their way toward the finish line. Your team will be responsible for setting up folding tables, filling water cups, passing out water and cleaning up once the last participant has passed.
