The 2015 Indiana State Fair, August 7–23, will be the greatest showcase of the past, present and future of Hoosier agriculture. The “Year of the Farmer” is dedicated to recognizing the families who make it happen and is presented by Dow AgroSciences.
As in past years, the Indiana State Fair takes pride in maintaining the staple events while finding new ways to engage visitors. The fair offers more than 140 food concessions every year, and with food being the number one reason for visitors to attend it continues to offer new places to explore culinary options. And in 2015 expect to see several enhancements to the fair experience. Fair-goers can look forward to enjoying their favorites in the Pedestrian Plaza right along Main Street. The Plaza will be a beautiful streetscape addition and gateway into the Indiana Farmers Coliseum, and will undoubtedly become the new people watching location.
The Purdue Extension Agriculture and Horticulture Building will be a great hub for all things local. Look forward to 4-H exhibits, cooking and educational demonstrations on the Red Gold Culinary Stage, sample stations and the Hoosier Marketplace that will exhibit local Indiana food products. And don’t forget about beverages: Over the past few years there has been a boom in craft beer and wine production and the State Fair has noticed. This will be the second year for the Indiana Beer and Wine Exhibit in the Grand Hall.
The 2015 Indiana State Fair will not disappoint and in between the many opportunities to devour all your fair favorites you will find many chances to interact with the people who produce our food and to learn what that takes.
