Event Information

Policies & Procedures
A listing of the Indiana Roof Ballroom policies and procedures will be sent to you with your event contract and can also be found here. Should you have any questions regarding our policy information, please feel free to discuss them with your Event Manager.


Facility Time Limit
Events held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom may last up to six hours and must end by midnight (12:00 AM).


Food & Beverage Services
Our prices are subject to change due to market fluctuations. We will strive to maintain price levels, and allow comparable items to be substituted in cases where the price increase is beyond our control.


Certificate of Insurance
You will be required to provide a certificate of insurance for a general liability policy of $1 million, naming the business entities operating at the Indiana Roof Ballroom as additionally insured. This is easily obtained through your business or homeowners insurance at no charge to you and is due two months prior to your event.


Specialty Equipment & Linens
We will provide tables, chairs, linens, flatware, glassware, and china for your event. We offer the use of 5ft round tables, square tablecloths (85x85) available in black, white and ivory, and an assortment of colors of napkins. Should you choose to upgrade our standard offerings, you may do so at an additional cost by using either A Classic Party Rental or Best Rentals, our exclusive vendors. You are welcome to visit their showrooms to make your selections and place a tentative order, which we will confirm during the planning process. The Roof will manage your rentals from the delivery to the return of the equipment and a prevailing service charge and tax will apply. Additional labor fees will apply for the application and removal of chair covers and ties.


Special Order Products
Products are purchased in predetermined amounts and will not be restocked. Specialty food and beverage items are available upon request.

The 2016 Indianapolis 500 was one to remember! Race weekend’s most exclusive party, the KeyBank 500 Festival Snakepit Ball, was held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. To help celebrate the 100th running of the Indy 500, the theme was Spectacle: A Night Circus Celebrating the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.


Guests arrived on the televised red carpet before enjoying entertainment from cirque-style performers and Walk Off the Earth, a platinum-selling group.
