Plan Your Event
Thinking of Hosting an Event in Fishers?
Each year hundreds of special events are planned in Fishers. Fishers has a variety of facilities available to host everything from a small picnic to a multi-day festival. We want your event to be safe and successful, and that starts at the planning phase. Fishers staff is available to help guide you through the process.

Permits and Notification
Events in Fishers fall into one of four tiers, based on their size, location, obstruction of traffic and use of Fishers personnel. Since all events have their own variables, each event is evaluated individually. If you have any questions regarding which tier your event would fall under, please contact us.
