CARMEL, IN – Summer at Midtown Plaza is about to get even better in 2023. The City of Carmel and Allied Solutions will double the opportunities to watch weekly movies on the BIG SCREEN, while the weekly outdoor music offering will change from lunch time to dinner time. In addition, a new Midtown Block Party is being planned for May 13.

All the exciting changes will go into effect in May, perfect timing for the community to gather at the Plaza on warm summer days and nights.

“Midtown Plaza was designed to be a public space where people from all over can gather and get to know each other. Scheduling these special events and regular weekly events give everyone a reason to venture out of their homes and enjoy the beauty of Midtown and the Monon Boulevard,” said Nancy Heck, Director of Community Relations and Economic Development.

Here are the details of the event changes.
