Presented by the Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Brown County, this year’s Taste event is chock-full of exciting new features. In addition to its new central location at the Courthouse parking lot and grounds, this year’s event will provide the opportunity for guests to win several top-notch prizes, including an overnight getaway for two to Brown County.

Not only will guests be able to sample the best dishes, treats, and drinks Brown County has to offer, but they also can kick back and relax to an afternoon of live music, performed from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. After filling up on delicious local fare in the sampling area and family-friendly wine garden, guests are encouraged to bring along their blankets and chairs and stay a while.

The Taste of Brown County will have plenty of activities to keep the kids busy as well. A kid zone, complete with a bounce house and other fun games, will be a guaranteed good time for children of all ages.

A People’s Choice Award winner for best sample also will be announced at 5 p.m., as guests are encouraged to vote throughout the day for their favorite.

Laura Moses, Program Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Brown County and Bartholomew County encourages everyone to check out the event, “Brown County is such a gorgeous community with so much talent and lots of energy.”

“The Taste of Brown County is a great opportunity to experience cuisine maybe you haven’t before and to support the local community,” says Moses. “Maybe you will even find a restaurant or two to add to your annual bucket list while you’re at it.”
