Time to hit the road for Indiana’s fabulous food fests

by | Updates

When you live at the Culinary Crossroads of America, like we do here in Indiana, it’s easy to find great restaurants, bountiful farmers’ markets, unique products and fabulous festivals. This week in our On the Road newsletter, we tell you about a Burmese restaurant in Greenwood and a pastry chef in Fort Wayne, but we’re also stoked for food fest season!

We hope that as you enjoy this edition of the newsletter, you’ll scroll down a bit and check out our Culinary Calendar. This lineup of food fests, wine tastings, craft beer events and food sport competitions will take you all around the state exploring some of the tastiest events of the season.

From Indy’s upcoming Burger Week and the Anderson On Tap craft beer fest to the Fort Wayne Greek Fest and the Brown County Blues, Brews and BBQ festival, our culinary calendar will help you plan a delicious summer.

We hope you’ll check out some of these foodie events around the state, and if you do, be sure to tag us on social media – we’d love to see photos of your Juneteenth picnic in Madison or the Bartender Brawl cocktail competition at the Valpo Blues & BBQ Festival.

It just doesn’t get much nicer than summertime in Indiana, and if your plans involve a weekend food festival, well, that’s even better. You’ll find plenty to keep you busy – and full – this summer as you hit the road and explore all of what Indiana has to offer. We’ll be out and about as well and hope to see you soon – maybe at Pierogi Fest in July or the Persimmon Festival in September. Be sure to say hello!
