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 27th Annual Taste on May 25, 2017 the best yet. Email kappatasteofvalpo@gmail.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 2017 are:Restaurants-Web
