Hoosier farm communities have always known how to grow a good thing, including the game of basketball – as it grew here as it would grow nowhere else. From back road barnyards to small town schoolyards; from high school gyms to college field houses, from neighborhood streets to big city arenas….Indiana basketball has always raised spirits and created champions. And while the rest of the country eventually joined us in our pursuit of basketball glory, nobody does it like we do.
The State Fair is proud to team up with Pacers Sports & Entertainment to pay tribute to Indiana’s rich basketball heritage….to bring you the Year of Basketball!
Bee Window Harvest Pavilion will be home to the Indiana Pacers Sports and Entertainment Activation Court and where we’ll celebrate Indiana’s basketball history. You won’t want to miss the free throw shoot-outs, dunk contests, ba-skee ball, and daily performances! Learn More About the 2020 Indiana State Fair theme.
