My husband and I have enjoyed attending Vintage Indiana for several years now. The dynamics have changed a bit since having children, but some years we take them and some we don’t! The fun and festivities at the event only get better each year, with or without kids.
What I love about the festival is the opportunity to try local Indiana wines that don’t make it to major grocery store shelves. I consider them to be hidden treasures waiting to be discovered! And you may even find your favorite new wine is just a stone’s throw away.
The 2012 Vintage Indiana Festival will take place at Military Park in downtown Indianapolis on Saturday, June 2nd from 11am-7pm.
Here’s what’s on tap (in the barrel?) for Vintage Indiana:
- 26 Indiana wineries will sample more than 200 wines
- Sample foods from local and national restaurants
- Free concerts begin at 12pm and go through 6:45pm, and feature Mike Milligan & Steam Shovel, Hoosier favorite Jennie DeVoe and former American Idol Casey James!
- Browse local artist booths
- Stop by the Food & Wine Pavilion for quick & easy tips and recipes from local chefs and winemakers, such as “Beat the Dinnertime Clock”.
- Bring the children to the KidZone for kiddie fun!
Ticket prices are $22 for adults in advance ($25 at the gate), $10 for Designated Drivers, children age 6-20 are $5 each and under 6 are free. Your ticket price includes wine sampling, concerts & booths, and a souvenir sampling glass with the Vintage Indiana logo for the first 10,000.
The contest is open NOW and will end at midnight Friday, 5/25/12. Good luck!
