By now, you’ve probably heard that Indy will be hosting the NBA All-Star weekend in 2024. But did you know part of it will be held at the football stadium?

In addition to hosting the Olympic Swim Team Trials in June of next year, Lucas Oil will also be used as a multi-purpose venue for festivities on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2024. Why? Well, it will allow almost twice as many people to enjoy the party (~18,000 at Gainbridge vs. ~35,000 at Lucas Oil). Plus, because of its versatility, the south end will be able to host activities while the north end can stay open for performances.

Here’s what you need to know about State Farm All-Star Saturday Night and some of the perks you’ll be able to enjoy while the league is in town.

The big event

Several noteworthy activities are set to take place at Lucas Oil, including:

  • AT&T Slam Dunk Contest
  • Starry Three-Point Contest
  • Kia Skills Challenge

Over 10,000 tickets will go on sale on Monday, July 24 with prices ranging from $24 to $79. Hoosiers will get first dibs on tickets, as long as they sign up to stay in the hoop — we mean loop.

The 73rd NBA All-Star Game will take place the following day at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

The perks

There will be free IndyGo rides from Thursday, Feb. 15 to Sunday, Feb. 18, as well as extended nightly service. Pacers Bike Share rides will also be free during that time.

We think Mayor Hogsett said it best: “Between two top-tier sports venues, four days of free public transit, and one of the most walkable downtowns in America, NBA All-Star has never been more accessible or fan-friendly.”
