Dig IN: Taste of Indiana

Dig IN invites local farmers, chefs, brewers, vintners and food enthusiasts around the table to indulge in the tastes of Indiana. If there is a heart in the Heartland, Indiana is it and Dig IN brings our state’s rich agricultural heritage into focus with a celebration of the farm to fork experience.

This summer, Indiana’s agricultural and culinary experts will make their way to Historic Military Park to lead guests on a journey from field to tabletop. The seventh annual festival will feature tastings of Indiana food, beer, wine and other local refreshments plus live entertainment and chefs demonstrating their cooking on site. Combining the freshness of farmer’s markets and Indiana’s greatest food minds, Dig IN promises a feast for the senses.

Save room to ‘dig in’ on August 28th!

The Details


More than 40 of Indiana’s finest chefs will prepare a unique dish based on fresh produce and meat and poultry from Indiana farms. Attendees will be able to interact directly with the chefs and some of the producers while dining on tastings. Come hungry and fill up over 40 different offerings available at the park.


Dig IN has partnered with the Indiana Wine Grape Council and the Brewers of Indiana Guild to provide Indiana-made wines and beers.
