It’s become one of the area’s most anticipated annual festivals, but the Taste of Montgomery County also fulfills a very important role: the Taste is the largest fundraiser for the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum, located on the grounds in Crawfordsville where Lew Wallace penned his masterwork, Ben-Hur. The 6th Annual Taste of Montgomery County will be held this Saturday, August 25, from 12:00-10:00 p.m.
Revenues from the gate sales at this year’s Taste will go to fund the Museum’s extensive programming and the 2013 annual exhibit focusing on Wallace descendants. 2013 programming will tie into exhibit themes and will include genealogy and family history workshops, lectures, and a walking tour.
Tickets for the Taste are now on sale at the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum and several downtown locations. Advance tickets to the Taste are $4 for adults and $2 for students; on the day of the Taste, tickets will be $5 for adults and $3 for students.
