Mark your calendars, Indy. On April 8, 2024 at 3:06 p.m., darkness will fall over Indianapolis. ICYMI, our city is one of just a few across North America where this total solar eclipse — dubbed the Great American Eclipse — will be visible, meaning the moon will completely obscure the sun.

What better way to celebrate this celestial event than at Newfields’ “Total Eclipse of the Art”? Get a fantastic view of the eclipse from The Gardens at Newfields and be a part of this historic moment.

The “Total Eclipse of the Art” event will feature multiple DJs, light and fire shows, yoga, food, and more festivities. Tickets also include access to the entire Indianapolis Museum of Art. The event will start at 11:00 a.m., giving Hoosiers plenty of time to get into the celestial spirit.

Choose between three ticket options:

  • General Admission ($34 for adults)
  • Penumbra Pass ($58 for adults)
  • Totality Ticket ($110)

Bonus: Newfields offers discounts for seniors, youth, and museum members — plus, kids five and under get in free. See what each ticket includes.
