Indiana State Fair
The Indiana State Fair announced its robust plans that will incorporate their automotive focused theme that will celebrate Fun at the Speed of Summer – Celebrating Indiana’s Automotive Excellence, presented by Tom Wood Automotive Group.
The 165th Indiana State Fair will take place Friday, July 29th through Sunday, August 21st and will continue its long tradition as Indiana’s favorite all-encompassing summer destination event.
Indiana’s rich automotive tradition is a signature source of pride for Hoosiers, and the Indiana State Fair looks forward to celebrating Indiana’s worldwide recognition for its automotive history and contributions to the industry. Fairgoers can expect to see iconic, celebrity cars from movies and books, in addition to world-class classic car collections showcasing Indiana-made vehicles, and so much more.
In addition to traditional fair favorites, guests can expect to be immersed in auto-themed experiences for the 2022 Indiana State Fair:
