Fact Sheet

Fishers, IN is one of the fastest growing communities in the United States. According to livability.com, “In 1990, the then town of Fishers, IN, had a population of 9,000. By 2016, the city of Fishers (Fishers transitioned from a town to a city in 2015) boasted a population of more than 88,000 and claimed the title of fastest growing city in Indiana.” Fishers is located in Hamilton County.

While there are many reasons for the rapid growth of Fishers, its residents point to the fact that it is only 20 miles from downtown Indianapolis but has many of its own urban amenities. It has 24 parks, more than 60 sports fields, and more than 100 miles of trails and greenways for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike.

Fishers’ cultural epicenter is the Nickel Plate District. The district’s main attraction is an Amphitheater, which hosts a free summer concert series, movies in the park, and festivals throughout the year, including the Fishers Freedom Festival on Independence Day, the fall Boo Bash for Halloween, and the winter Frost Fest.
