Since May 2018, Hamilton County Tourism, Visit Indy and the City of Indianapolis have worked to research and develop the anticipated White River Vision Plan. Community members and residents also played a large role in this process, participating in surveys and attending meetings to offer feedback.

With nearly twelve months of planning, the plan is finally ready to be unveiled, which is clearly a reason to celebrate. The White River Vision Plan will be announced June 3 and followed by a week-long celebration for all to enjoy.

In addition to events in Indianapolis, Carmel, Fishers and Noblesville will host a number of exciting events. Here’s a quick breakdown of how you can get involved in the celebration.
