The exhibitors at the Indianapolis Home Idea & Food Festival 2011 conduct a three-day crash course on the art of home entertaining with more than 150 booths. Festivalgoers can learn the savory secrets of the cooking underworld at demos that showcase culinary products slicker than a dolphin covered in sunscreen. World-class craft beer and Indiana-winery tastings add malty sparkle to the day, and a kitchen and bath expo helps gawkers evoke visions of bubble-bath grandeur (additional fee for tastings). In addition to learning new tricks for at-home entertaining, guests may also purchase unique products for sale at the show, which can help spark conversation at ensuing dinner parties or facilitate successful bartering with foodie traffic cops.
An additional $3 fee to park at the Indiana State Fairgrounds is not included in the price of this Groupon.
The 2012 Music City RV & Boat Super Show
Amid the sprawling halls of Hendersonville Expo Center, outdoor enthusiasts wend through upwards of 100,000 square feet of displays helmed by thousands of local and regional purveyors of outdoor recreational equipment for land and sea. Fleets of RVs and personal watercrafts sit patiently as visitors daydream about future fresh air adventures or daring action movies they could film aboard the crafts. An onsite food court prevents stomachs from interrupting leisurely strolls through the show with whining growls.
