Safety Precautions

Masks required in all buildings regardless of vaccination status

At Conner Prairie, your safety is our top priority. Beginning 9/7, Conner Prairie will require all guests to mask up while in all modern and historic buildings. In addition, guests will be highly encouraged to wear masks while outdoors. As things evolve, Conner Prairie strives to do what's best for our community.

As with other local businesses, we are currently experiencing staffing shortages. With that in mind, you may notice some areas of the Welcome Center have to be temporarily closed down. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. For additional questions and concerns, please contact Guest Services at 317-776-6000.

With upcoming festivals and events, festival guests will be required to wear masks when participating in various activities regardless of vaccination status. Guests will be highly encouraged to wear masks in other festival areas when social distancing is not possible.
