INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 12, 2016)   You can show your Hoosier pride for the month of May and help support the 500 Festival’s life-enriching events and programs with a purchase of a specialty license plate.

These plates are available to Indiana motorists, and bear the 500 Festival’s iconic logo, which has come to represent all of the events in Indiana during the month of May.

Those programs and events are  mostly free and produced largely by volunteers. They also impact more than half a million people every year and enhance the image of Indiana by showcasing the state’s cultural, educational and social benefits to the world.

The 500 Festival will receive a $25 donation for every 500 Festival specialty plate that is purchased. The funds generated through license plate sales will go towards the youth and education initiatives.

You can purchase your 500 Festival license plate by visiting or ask at any license branch or BMV certified partner location. The cost for the specialty license plate is $40 and is in addition to the normal fees and taxes paid with the registration. –
