    Looking for something to do this weekend? Plan a trip to Lafayette-West Lafayette on Saturday,June 20th, 2015! 4pm to midnight will be one of Lafayette's biggest summer events, The Taste of Tippecanoe! Everything is good! This event has a lot of something for everyone. From food to music, this one night event features the absolute best from the Greater Lafayette area.

    Taste of   Tippecanoe

    Admission is $10, cash per person upon entering the gates. After that, you can purchase tickets for $1 a piece. Each vendor will then have a few different options for one or just a few tickets. This allows guests to easily make transactions with vendors without having to carry around a bunch of cash. Most vendors will offer a one ticket special that will be for a sample of their main dish. For example, one small scoop of ice cream or a mini bun with pulled pork on it. This gives you an opportunity to really get a taste of all that the greater Lafayette has to offer!

    This year three different stages will be set up that feature all different types of music. Music will range from rock to country to blues and many more! I highly recommend arriving as soon as you can in order to really get a Taste of all of the music! Local artists can really be the best performers and entertainers.

    For those of you whom are of age, local wines and great summer beers will also be available for a few tickets to enjoy with all of your scrumptious tastes.

    The night continues on with lots of friends, family and laughter. Once it becomes dark outside, last year it was at 10:45, the sky will be brightened up again. This time not with the sun, but with a spectacular fireworks show! One of the coolest memories of mine from attending last years Taste was sitting on the pedestrian bridge over the Wabash with some of my closest friends watching the fireworks. This was the best ending there could have been to end such a spectacular night!
