Our signature event of the year, the Taste features around 30 restaurants from in and around Valparaiso, Indiana. Each restaurant brings samples of some of their best eats to share with roughly 1000 participants who fill the Porter County Expo Center hoping to go home stuffed. The evening is enhanced with a Raffle, and Silent Auction. 100% of profits are redistributed into the community. Corporate sponsors are welcome and Taste organizers are already looking for interested sponsors and restaurants to make the 28th Annual Taste on May 24, 2018 the best yet. Email email@example.com for more information.

Each year, Northwest Indiana’s tastiest eateries line the walls of the Porter County Expo Center to show off their signature dishes and other tasty concoctions. A full cash banquet bar is available to compliment the food. Restaurants for 2018 are still to be determined. See below for our restaurants from 2017:
