Dig IN invites local farmers, chefs, brewers, vintners and food enthusiasts around the table to indulge in the tastes of Indiana. If there is a heart in the Heartland, Indiana is it and Dig IN brings our state’s rich agricultural heritage into focus with a celebration of the farm-to-fork experience. 

On August 25, Indiana’s agricultural and culinary experts will make their way to White River State Park to lead guests on a journey from field to tabletop. The fourth-annual festival will feature tastings of Indiana food, beer, wine and other local refreshments plus live entertainment, discussion panels and cooking demonstrations. Combining the freshness of farmers markets and Indiana’s greatest food minds, Dig IN promises a feast for the senses. 

Details:
Food
More than 35 of Indiana's finest chefs will prepare a unique dish based on fresh produce and meat and poultry from Indiana farms and food producers. Attendees will be able to interact directly with the chefs and some of the producers while dining on a small plate of 2-3 bites or spoonfuls. Prepared to ‘dig in’ and fill up on the nearly three dozens offerings available at the park. Some vegetarian options plus sweets from Just Rennie’s Cookie Company, Circle City Sweets and Nicey Treat will be available. 

Beverages
Dig IN has partnered with the Indiana Wine Grape Council and the Brewers of Indiana Guild to provide locally made wines and beers. More than 20 wineries and breweries are on tap, as is Bjava Coffee & Tea with a signature iced coffee and Natural Born Juicers with a special Dig IN refreshment. Beverages will be available for taste and purchase. 

Entertainment & Speakers
Enjoy a wide range of music from local bands that will be playing in three areas around the park. Demonstrations will include cooking classes on a large stage and smaller stations featuring ongoing education throughout the day. Look for topics such as Indiana barbecue, canning and food preservation, and other ways to savor the bounty of Indiana’s agriculture. Indiana experts will be on hand to discuss nutrition and the latest concepts on the local food scene. 

Tickets:
General Admission ($40)
A general admission ticket for Dig IN is sure please any foodie and allows for entry into the park at noon. As with all ticket levels, one sample tasting from each food and beverage vendor is included in the price of admission. Food samples are 2-3 bites and beverage samples are 3 ounces each. Additional beverages, refreshments, and artisan snacks will be available for purchase from select vendors. General admission guests can enjoy live music, cooking demonstrations and panel discussions. 

Early Entry Ticket ($60)
Enjoy everything Dig IN has to offer, but earlier! Enter the festival grounds at 11 a.m. and enjoy a relaxed hour of sampling prior to general admission at noon. Visit your favorite vendors and be able to have more in-depth conversations with the producers, artisans, and chefs while you enjoy tastes at your leisure. Join experienced Dig IN patrons who know the perks of early admission, butut don’t delay because tickets are limited and will sell out quickly!

VIP Experience ($90)
All new this year, there will be a special tent for VIP ticket holders. The VIP Experience includes all of the benefits of the early entry ticket plus… Chefs Neal Brown (The Libertine, Pizzology and Dig IN co-founder) and Greg Hardesty (Recess, Room Four) will each spend an hour in the VIP tent showing off their unique cooking skills for you to witness up close. Some of the breweries and wineries at Dig IN will serve reserve items from their cellars for limited tastings. A few of our most-popular chefs will present their Dig IN dish along with the farmer who provided the ingredients. Added bonus: Luxury, climate-controlled restrooms will be accessible only to VIP ticket holders. This is your ticket to Dig ‘IN’ style.
