It’s back and bigger than ever!
Sheila McKinley, Director of Planning for Christopher B. Burke Engineering, and Leah K. Nahmias, Director of Programs and Community Engagement for Indiana Humanities, preview the week-long celebrations in conjunction with the eighth annual Canoe to Work Day on Friday, June 7.
Burke Engineering has partnered with the City of Indianapolis, Hamilton County Tourism, Inc., Visit Indy and Indiana Humanities to expand this year’s Canoe to Work festivities and add in the free public pop up events during the week.
A free film screening of locally produced and shot films all about the White River will take place at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater in Fishers on Thursday, June 6 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Complimentary drinks and snacks will be provided during this lunch-hour event.

Canoe to Work Day kicks off at 7 a.m. in the Indianapolis metro area. Additional groups are slated to enjoy Canoe to Work Day across the state, from St. Joseph’s River in the north to the Wabash River to the south. This year’s organizers are encouraging all of Indiana to get out and enjoy the White River during the first week of June – from a riverfront walk in Strawtown Koteewi Park and a stop at the Conner Prairie Overlook to a stroll of the Efroymson Riverfront Garden and Canoe Launch on the grounds of the Indianapolis Art Center and everything in between.
