Rehearsal will be at the law offices of

11 South Meridian St , Indianapolis IN

On the day of the event, enter through the main entrance on Meridian Street.  A security goard will direct you to the rehearsal location.

After rehearsal, participants are responsible to walk one block to the west to the Artsgarden, which is indicated as "AG" on the map below. Take all your possessions with you because we will not return to Barnes and Thurnburg after the event.

See the parking advisory.


Parking can be an issue at these events. However, in 2021, none of our events conflict with Colts home games, so we do not anticipate any parking difficulties. Here are several options:

  • Street parking is generally free on Sunday if you can find a space.
  • The Circle Center Mall garage is most convenient. Normal rates should be in effect, $8.00 for 4- 5 hours.
  • You can park at the Claypool (northwest corner of Washington and Illinois) at their normal rates which will be about $15 for the day. This is the garage that serves the Embassy Suites.

On the day of Jingle Bones 2019, the Santa Hustle race will be active downtown.  There are two races (a 5K and half-marathon) that could complicate your arrival.  Please review the course maps:

From the maps, it looks like everything is northwest.  N. Illinois St. might be closed, but N. Pennsylvania St. and E. Washington St are both open.  So, please plan to approach the ArtsGarden from the East or South, not West or North.

The 5K should be over long before our registration time (11:00 AM).  The half-marathon should have cleared the immediate area of the Artsgarden and Barnes and Thornburg by registration time, but some congestion might remain.

If you are delayed, don't worry.   It will all work out.

The 30th presentation of Jingle Bones

took place on Sunday December 5, 2021

We had a good group of trombonists, including Rusty Briel who traveled from Albuqyerque.  Rusty was at the first Jingle Bones event in Evansville Indiana and has been a great supporter of this event through the years. 

You can hear audio from the 2021 event here.
