Street Scenes Goes Country!

Welcoming over 5,000 guests to Carmel Catholic High School’s campus, Street Scenes 2024 “Cheers to 50 Years” was a huge success!  Not only did our largest community event raise record breaking funds for our Corsairs, but we enjoyed many special tributes recognizing our rich 50 year history of Street Scenes. We respectfully acknowledge all of the efforts that have gone into this unique Carmel Catholic production over the years and are grateful for the generosity of all of those that have supported our mission through this event.

Endless Entertainment

Each year, Carmel Catholic High School is transformed into a spectacular, fun-filled venue featuring more than 40 live bands, casino games, theatrical performances, a magic show, the popular cabaret-style student show, local food and beverage vendors, a silent auction and much more.

Carmel Catholic’s Largest Fundraiser

Street Scenes has contributed $12 million to assist Carmel Catholic High School students in meeting their educational goals by keeping tuition as low as possible and ensuring the best programming and activities.

A New Theme Each Year

Each year features a new theme! As we mark the 51st year of Street Scenes in 2025, we’re going Country!

Where Did the Idea of Street Scenes Come From? 

It all started with a group of parent volunteers – including the Kasting, Howland, Thompson, and Nemmers families – who looked to help raise money for Carmel High School. At the time in 1974, there were two separate schools – one for the girls and one for the boys – with which came separate fundraisers for each school. The families thought of combining the schools’ fundraisers into one major event. So, Street Scenes kicked off with two shows for families who wanted to raise money for the school. 

Over the years, Street Scenes flourished and became a mainstay for students, parents, alumni, and community members. Would our founding families have thought that this is where Street Scenes would be more than 50 years and $12 million later? They would be proud to know that their efforts have benefitted Carmel Catholic students in unimaginable ways, providing them with countless resources to support their education and growth at Carmel Catholic.

Since then, Carmel Catholic graduates have continued to offer their citizenship and service to the world. From the classroom to the boardroom and from fields of athletic competition to those of scientific discovery, generations of Carmel Catholic students have left our halls with the ability to understand and contribute to the greater good of society.
