Plan your next Indiana visit for the fall. The Hoosier State is filled with fall fun. Start big in Indianapolis, the state's largest city and Indiana’s state capital, with fall's Indy Jazz Festival, Heartland Film Festival or traditional Oktoberfest. Famous as home of the Indianapolis 500, fall in the city is great time to visit the Indianapolis Zoo and White River Gardens, or head inside at the National Art Museum of Sport. Runners set your sights on fall's Indianapolis Marathon.
Celebrate Indiana heritage with a stop at Headwaters Park in Fort Wayne for Germanfest or Greek Fest, and don’t miss the Three Rivers Festival, northeast Indy's biggest festival. Evansville, the River City, is set in southern Indiana on the Ohio River – a commercial, education and cultural hub for the region, where you’ll find the Hoosier Nationals BMX series, or the National Natural Landmark-Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve.
The excitement of fall football hits hard in Indiana. South Bend in northern Indiana cheers the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Notre Dame Stadium, the Purdue Boilermakers entertain the crowds in West Lafayette at Ross-Ade Stadium, while down south in Evansville, it's Screaming Eagles Women's Volleyball and Men's soccer bringing out fans. The NFL season also kicks off in September – head for Lucas Oil Stadium near downtown Indy for all the excitement of Colts games.
