The annual Spark!Fishers festival, ignited by First Internet Bank, returns to Fishers’ Nickel Plate Cultural District this summer. Kicking off on Tuesday, June 21 and running through Saturday, June 25, the weeklong festival will offer different ways for the community to celebrate each day. 

“We invite the entire community to our largest celebration of the year. Spark!Fishers highlights what it is to be a Fishers resident, showcasing the breadth of art, food, music, and community organizations, all locally sourced,” said Fishers Parks Director, Sarah Sandquist.  

The patriotic celebration will be packed full of family favorites and Independence Day traditions, while launching the Fishers Sesquicentennial Celebration, honoring Fishers’ 150th birthday by showcasing what it means to be uniquely Fishers. All events, with the exception of the 5K, are free to attend, and no registration is required.  

“For years, we have called Fishers home and are excited to remain a member of this vibrant community with the opening of our new headquarters in the Nickel Plate District,” said Nicole Lorch, First Internet Bank President and Chief Operating Officer. “We look forward to once again sharing this annual summer celebration with the City of Fishers and our neighbors.”
