We’re about to have so much fun at this year’s TASTE, and that’s all due to the enormous support we get from our community and sponsors! All of the funds made at the TASTE of Tippecanoe goes straight towards arts programs and resources in the Tippecanoe Arts Federation’s 14-county service region. The TASTE takes a village to create and we are so thankful that our sponsors understand the importance and impact of arts in our community. We would not be able to do this event without the hard work of our TASTE committee, our volunteers, and the support from our sponsors.

The TASTE is an annual fundraiser presented by the Tippecanoe Arts Federation. The funds raised by the TASTE support TAF’s mission to grow the arts in 14 counties in North Central Indiana through programs like the After School Arts Program and the ARTreach Instrument Lending Program. With each restaurant, sponsor, volunteer, and attendee who supports the TASTE, a member of our community gains the opportunity to experience art—possibly for the first time. Thank you for helping us grow the arts—your support is changing lives!
