Advance tickets for the third-annual Taste of Montgomery County are on sale now at select Crawfordsville locations. Visitors can purchase Taste tickets at the Carriage House Interpretive Center of the General Lew Wallace Study and Museum, home of the Taste; the Montgomery County Visitors and Convention Bureau at the corner of Pike and Green streets; Kwik Kopy Printing at 123 East Main Street, Milligan’s Flowers & Gifts at 115 East Main and Moon Dance Café at the corner of Washington and Main. Advance tickets are $4 for adults and $2 for students.
The benefits of purchasing advance tickets are twofold. Advance tickets are $1 cheaper—adult tickets at the gate on the day of the Taste will be $5 and student tickets will be $3. Advance ticket holders will also be able to get into the gate faster on the day of the Taste, as they won’t have to wait in line to purchase tickets. This could be a real advantage when crowds gather for the nationally-recognized musical acts scheduled to play at this year’s Taste. The Woodstove Flapjacks, an acoustic bluegrass band from Lafayette, will play at 1:00 p.m., and The Big Swing Band from Lafayette rocks the house at 4:30 p.m. At 8:00 p.m., the Gordon Bonham Blues Band, a mainstay of the star-studded Indianapolis Jazz Festival, takes the Taste stage for a rousing finale.
The Taste of Montgomery County will be held at the General Lew Wallace Study and Museum on Saturday, August 29, from 12:00 to 10:00 p.m. The restaurants and caterers showcasing their foods at this year’s Taste include Buffalo Wild Wings, Two Guys Cooking, Bon Appétit, Rumor’s Bar & Grill, Tacos el Jarocho, A Country A-Fair, Arthur’s Café, The Iron Gate, The Big Dipper, Applebee’s, Moon Dance Café, Joey’s Main Street Café & Catering, The Juniper Spoon, Norvell’s BBQ & Catering, China Inn, Miller’s Quality Meats & Catering, Elaine’s Catering & Tea Shop, Good To Go Xpresso, and the Lew Wallace Study Preservation Society.
