Superbowl Village is an interactive festival from Capitol Avenue to Pennsylvania—and most of it is completely free. Including transportation! IndyGo’s fixed, local routes will be free from February 2nd through February 5th. I’m also hearing teases about free shuttles outside of the city, but I have not yet found detailed schedule information.
There is also food available for purchase and a zipline at $10 per person. The presale tickets have soldout, but you can still hop in line for standby. I imagine the lines will be completely insane, but how cool would it be to zip over the city?
Free activities include:
- Nightly concerts: Through the 10 days of Superbowl Village, more than 60 performers will hit the Pepsi Stage, hosted by Zuri Hall and Mike Epps. Be sure to check the Superbowl events calendar for details.
- Super Dash: This sounds like a human hamster wheel. Fans of each team can take a turn running on the wheel. The fans that generate the most energy over the course of 10 days will be crowned the vicotr!
- Kinect NFL PLAY 60 FanDome: I’ve been wanting to try out the Kinect. Why not give it a shot in a 360 degree inflated dome for the Superbowl?
- Ice Gurus: Watch the Food Network’s Ice Brigade as they create ice sculptures live on site.
- ESPN Broadcast Studio: Several popular shows will be produced in the Pan Am Plaza. They will be open for public viewing through Superbowl week.
- Super Cars: Nothing says Indianapolis like Indy Cars, so the city will be showing them off in the heart of downtown.
- Superbowl Roman Numerals: I can’t wait to get the girls’ picture in front of the giant Superbowl Numbers! The 30-foot display will be available from January 24th through the Superbowl.
- Superbowl Fan Jam: More free concerts, from Univision, VH1 and CMT will be held at the convention center and Indiana State Fairgrounds, as part of the Pepsi Fan Jam. Get your free tickets in advance.
