Indy Cultural Tidbits: Music By The Canal & The Biggest Victorian Yardsale Of Them All!

The post is a continuing series to remind ourselves as natives of this great city and to potential visitors that Indianapolis has lots to offer culturally.

So many cool happenings, so little space.

The biggest Victorian Emporium ,a.k.a. yardsale, of the year is at the historical Woodruff Place neighborhood. Woodruff Place is located at the 1800 block east of downtown on 10th Street (2 way)and Michigan St (1 way westbound). Held Saturday 8am - 5pm and Sunday 10am - 5pm. Admission free and you can park in or around the neighborhood. I recall a Krogers or Safeway on the north side of 10th Street that should have ample parking. Over 200 stalls with antiques, art, food, music, and whatnot. Proceeds go to restoration of the fountains, antique lighting, and urns in the neighborhood. From the school head east on New York St, then once you get past the interstate take a left and head north until you hit 10th St, then hang a right. You'll be there in a few minutes at that point.

Concerts on the Canal: This continues through the summer so it can be something to do on a nice night like this one. The Indiana Historical Society hosts free concerts along the canal. The IHS building is on the corner of Ohio and West streets and is caddy-corner from the law school so you have no excuse not to go. Bring your own picnic and date or buy a meal from the Stardust Terrace Cafe. Thursday nights starting at 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Fridays for lunch starting at 11:30am to 1pm. If you're on campus head on over for a lunch or dinner break. The shame of it is the series ends right before fall classes begin. Most of the student body will have no idea such a treasure exists right next door to them.
