The Taste of Montgomery County is an annual fundraiser for the Lew Wallace Study Preservation Society, the organization which preserves the original artifacts of General Lew Wallace and keeps his legacy alive. All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to the museum’s educational programming, while food ticket sales are split between the museum and vendors.
The advantages of buying tickets in advance are twofold. Advance tickets are cheaper – adult tickets at the door on Taste Day will be $ 7 and student tickets will be $ 3. Advance ticket holders will also be able to get to the gate faster on Taste Day, as they won’t have to stand in line to purchase tickets.
It could be a real boon when the crowds gather for the live musical acts scheduled at this year’s Taste! From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Highland Reign will perform Scottish American folk rock. Local favorite War Radio will take the stage from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm Strawbury Jam will headline 8 pm to 10 pm with modern country rock.
Restaurants and caterers showcasing their dishes at this year’s Taste include: Aki Les Voy Takeria, Backstep Brewery, Coal Creek Cellars, Francis & Mount, Hoosier Ice Queen, Street Penguin Gelato, Sunoco Crawfordsville, The Juniper Spoon, The Warehouse Bakery and Wildfire348 .
