The Robert Irsay Pavilion is a 6,000 square foot entertainment facility located on the estate of Nancy Irsay. Nancy hosts over 20 charity events and civic meetings each year in the pavilion.

The Robert Irsay Pavilion was originally dubbed the "Party Barn." The Party Barn held it’s first event in 1986 for Christamore House and the Little Sisters of the Poor, in conjunction with Robert Irsay Charities, Inc. and the Indianapolis Colts. The facility was dramatically expanded in 1992 with a full stage, sound booth, floating dance floor, changing rooms, and a capacity to seat 430 for dinner.

The inaugural event in the remodeled and re-named Robert Irsay Pavilion was a Cole Porter performance presented by the American Cabaret Theater.

Over the years, many celebrities have attended events held in the Robert Irsay Pavilion including
Tony Bennett, Chuck Yeager, John Grisham, Morley Saefer, Laine Kazan, John Mellencamp, Kelsey Grammer, Ann Quinlain, Edna Buchanan, Kurt Vonnegut, Fabio, Payton Manning, Jeff Saturday and many other Colts players.
