I was expecting more vendors at the event considering it was for the city of Indianapolis. I have been to smaller towns that hold similar events and they have had 10x more vendors for customers to try food samples at a lower cost. I would not recommend someone to spend the money to go to this event until they get several more vendors.

This event was a nightmare. Got there at 5PM and some vendors were out of food. Event was very disorganized and extremely long lines. Paid $8 for a "$16" deal which included 2 worthless wrist bands and 5 dinner tickets. For example, a small 10 ounce coke was 2 tickets. So to give you an idea on the value, 4 of the 5 tickets that are worth "$16" got you $1 worth of soda! Horrible experience.

Overall the event was a nice experience but we were disappointed that some of the vendors ran out of food before the event was over.

I went to the Taste of Indy for the 1st time today and was very disappointed. Four restaurants (2 BBQ) and a handful of food trucks doesn't make the taste of Indy. Then Adobo ran out of food as did a lot of the food trucks. Where was the Greek, Asian, or other ethnic foods we have in Indy? I spent $20 on popcorn just so I could use my tickets, then went out to dinner after because I left hungry! I've been to 26 countries, but love to call Indy my home. I think when I want to try new foods, I'll pick a restaurant and not next years Taste of Indianapolis.

There were only a few food vendors. There were people that didn't have wristband walking around because of being on the canal. They didn't have any way to shut it down. The people running this need to go to the Taste of Lafayette and see how it is done.

It would be better if all vendors offered select choices rather than entire menus and Taste should not charge a separate entry fee if all vendors are going to be in a public place with full public access. In other words, three was nothing to stop someone from just walking up and purchasing food without payingthe entrance fee.

Didn't know it existed before I saw the Groupon!

It was disappointing that a lot of the vendors ran out of good by 5:00. The event wasn't over until 9:00.

Would not have known about it had I not seen groupon. Event has potential but very unorganized. Vendors ran out of food and ticket system needs to include drink and food.

More vendors would have been nice. All the lines were super long; it took forever to get anything and it shouldn't have cost more than a dollar per ticket.

From Our Editors

A pinch of Mediterranean. Equal parts Asian and Greek. A dash of soul for good measure. Though its recipe is far from exact, the Taste of Indy brings a spread of culinary traditions into one single celebration of food on Monument Circle Fourth of July Weekend. The festival's edible offerings come from more than 40 of the city's most unique restaurants, giving visitors a chance to taste the city without licking the state capitol building. The idea is to promote good food and healthy living, something that the over 12,000 attendees from 2016 can attest to. As a distraction from the non-stop munching, attendees can catch live, local artists playing everything from R&B to reggae, watch chefs share their tricks during interactive demonstrations, and visit family-friendly attractions that keep even the youngest of visitors entertained.
