The Little 500 Festival has raised over 2 Million for local non-profit organizations. Since 1988, the Festival has provided Madison County residents and visitors enough activities to fill the month of May. The goal of the Little 500 Festival is to create a celebration that provides family entertainment, inspires pride in our community and promotes the history of the historic Little 500 at the world's fastest quarter-mile oval of Anderson Speedway.
