This one-of-a-kind event celebrates Indiana’s rich history of designing, building and innovative transportation. Featuring concours-quality classic cars, vintage aircraft, motorcycles, antique steam engines, race cars and more. View these beautiful machines up close and learn the unique story behind each one.

The Festival of Machines has something for everyone in the family to enjoy. Children can test drive a soapbox derby car, build their own fizzy rocket dragster, take a ride on a hovercraft, or cheer along the tractor parade. This is one of the better car festivals in Central Indiana.
