3 Reasons To Do Rib America Festival Indianapolis

Rib America Festival Banner

Rib America Festival.  Downtown Indianapolis.  Labor Day weekend.  2012.

You know this is one of my absolute favorite annual events in downtown Indianapolis if you pay attention to the blog.  I remember going even when I was in high school, driving 30+ minutes to come downtown at the Murat Centre parking lot.  The event has long since outgrown that small lot and now calls Military Park its home.

My top three reason you should do Rib America Festival this year:

1. GREAT FOOD - Of course this event is all about the eats.  Presented by Indiana Pork Farmers, you have the opportunity to sample some great smoked, dry rubbed or slathered meat from around the country.  Ribs, rib tips, pulled port, chicken, turkey...it's all there.  Corn bread, spiral cut potatoes, tons of sauces, grilled corn, funnel cakes...it's all there.  Yes, they serve booze, too.

2. GREAT LIVE MUSIC -

Let's kick things off with Friday night's lineup featuring:

  • Duke Tomatoe & The Power Trio - 5-6:30pm
  • Eddie Money - 7-8:30pm
  • George Clinton & The Parliament Funkadelic - 9-10:30pm

Saturday's lineup is something different for Rib Fest this year and I am SO excited to see this change in the schedule.  They are presenting a jam band day, which I will not miss.

  • Upshot - 12-1pm
  • Infamous Stringdusters - 1:30-2:30pm
  • Twin Cats - 3-4:30pm
  • The Werks - 5-6:30pm
  • Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk - 7-8:30pm
  • moe. - 9-11pm

Sunday:

  • Picture Yes - 12:30-2pm
  • Hunter Smith Band - 2:45-4:15pm
  • TBA - 5-6:30pm
  • Night Ranger - 7:15-8:45pm
  • Tesla - 9:30-11pm

Monday:

  • Flatbed Twitch - 12-1:30
  • Dude - 2-3:30pm
  • Blue Oyster Cult - 4-5:30pm
  • Cheap Trick - 6-7:30pm

3. PEOPLE WATCHING:

Always one of the best elements at any type of festival.  It's great to sit around and watch people walk, or stumble, by.  Check out the crowd having a great time.  Talk to your fellow festival-goers to find out which stand has the best sauce, best ribs, best deal.

The Hilton Garden Inn Indianapolis Downtown is proud to be the Official Hotel sponsor of this year's Rib America Festival...for the fifth consecutive year!  Our three star hotel downtown Indianapolis has some great offers for you as we partner once again with this year's festivities:

Rib America Indianapolis Hotel Package - Ribs & More includes your overnight guest room, breakfast for two in the restaurant, two admission tickets and 20 food and beverage tickets to use at Rib America Festival.  Click the link to find out more!

Rib America Indianapolis Hotel Deal - ROOM ONLY RATE includes only your Indianapolis hotel accommodations.

You may even run into the winner of this year's people's choice award...or a musician if you stay with us!

IUPUI University Place Closing but Hilton Garden Inn a Great Alternative

With the IUPUI University Place Hotel being turned into a student dorm and dining hall, our Indianapolis Downtown Hotel makes a great alternative for hotel accommodations when visiting campus. With our location less than two miles from the university, visitors and guests to IUPUI will find our convenient location and luxury accommodations to be the perfect fit for short or long term stays.

After 25 years of providing accommodations to visiting professors, sports teams and parents, the hotel has decided to close its doors. Over the last 7 years, it has been operating at a deficit so the expansion into a new university dorm and dining room will add new life to this well-known facility. Its closing and subsequent renovation is good news for students on the large waiting list for on campus housing. And because the University Place is in the heart of campus, student access is ideal. The conversion into student housing commences December 2012 with completion and student use starting the fall semester of 2013.

When staying in our historic hotel Indianapolis visitors will find themselves transported in time in a stylish setting that makes a stay with us truly memorable. For affordable Indianapolis hotel packages, make sure to check our hotel special page and then give us a call to reserve your room.

Hilton Garden Inn Indianapolis Downtown Now Smoke Free

It’s official. As of June 1st, our hotel becomes a 100 percent non-smoking facility. Back in April, 2012 the Indianapolis mayor signed a smoking ban, which restricts smoking in all Downtown Indianapolis hotels,  restaurants, bars, entertainment centers and pretty much any public venue in the city.

The public smoking ban in Indy isn’t entirely new. Dating back to 2006, the city already banned smoking in the work place and restaurants. As of June 1, 2012, smoking is also banned in bars, bowling centers, nursing homes and hotel rooms in Marion County.

Smoking is allowed in Indianapolis cigar bars and hookah lounges, but owners will have to obtain a specialty bar license from the city. Cigarette smoking will also still be banned in these facilities even with the permit.

This newly issued Smoke Free Downtown Indy law was signed about a month after the State of Indiana instituted statewide smoking restrictions. Governor Mitch Daniels signed the smoking law, which goes into effect July 1st. The state law does provide exemptions for Indiana private clubs, tobacco stores, casinos and bars.

When looking for hotel accommodation Indianapolis visitors will now find that all of our luxury rooms are non-smoking. Give us a call today to find affordable Indianapolis hotel packages near all the popular Downtown Indy attractions.
