Indiana Farmers Coliseum
The Indiana Farmers Coliseum is a one-of-a-kind multi-purpose sports and entertainment facility located at the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center, home to more than 150 sporting and entertainment events each year.
Built in 1939 as the Livestock Pavilion, the Coliseum ranked among the largest and grandest structures of its time and type. It has been host to thousands of events, from National Livestock Shows, the ABA Indiana Pacers, and their 3 Championships in 4 years in the early 1970’s, Hockey, and the only Indiana performance of the Beatles in 1964.
With its history intact, the Indiana Farmers Coliseum underwent a $53 million renovation in 2012, modernizing the iconic Indianapolis venue, and paving the way for a new era of sports and entertainment. Indiana Farmers Coliseum is home to the ECHL’s Indy Fuel and the NCAA IUPUI Jaguars. The Indiana Farmers Coliseum hosts over 150 events and over 1 million guests annually with events ranging from professional sports, live music, family shows, Auto Auctions, and special events.
