Taste of Valparaiso

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 30th Annual Taste on May 21, 2020 the best yet. Email rfrataccia@frontier.com for more information.

Save the Date
The 30th Annual Taste of Valparaiso will be held at the Porter County Expo Center from 5:30-7:30 pm on May 21, 2020.

Tickets are available in April. Early Bird tickets are $40 from a Tri Kappa member,  and locally at Designer Desserts, Radius, and Tudor Carpet One. Tickets will be $45 at the door, so remember to buy early and save. Cash, credit, and personal checks are welcome at the door.

Children and Strollers
Due to space limitations and large crowds, strollers are not allowed in the Taste. Children old enough to walk need a full price ticket.

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. See below for our list of restaurants from 2019. Continue to check back to see this year’s restaurants.
