Dig IN, A Taste of Indiana, will again showcase Indiana’s top chefs, growers/producers, brewers, vintners, and value-added food producers at the third annual event, Aug. 26 at White River State Park.
As part of the ticket price, visitors are treated to two-ounce tastes of unique dishes made with farm-fresh Indiana produce and proteins. More than 30 of the state’s greatest food minds will prepare the tastes on site while discussing their recipes and the all-Hoosier ingredients with visitors.
“Dig IN combines the best Indiana has to offer in the way of food and culinary creativity,” said Annie Schmelzer, chair of the 19-member Dig IN board that includes the state’s biggest proponents of Indiana food and agriculture.
Even the beverages used to wash down the tastes will have an Indiana flavor: The Indiana Wine Grape Council and Brewers of Indiana Guild will provide wine and beer tastings, and local soft drinks and water will be served as well. Local bands, urban gardening exhibits, educational discussion panels, local expert Q&A sessions will round out the day.
Tickets are available now through the Dig IN web site. All tastes and samples are included as part of the ticket. Through July, tickets are $30. In August (and day of event), tickets are $40. Children 10 and under are $10. The event runs from noon to 5pm.
VIP tickets are available for $60 and allow 1,000 guests an 11am entry to the event and a more casual opportunity to talk with chefs, vintners, brewers and all participants, also are available on the web site.
