“This is one of our largest fundraisers of the year. It provides opportunities for art education. That’s the feel-good reason to come,” said Cornerstone director of community relations Jeff Robinson. “The selfish reason is getting to eat all the food you can fit into yourself.”

This year’s event will also feature a “beer garden” for those 21 and older, which will be exclusively stocked with beers made in Muncie.

There will also be several art instructors at the event showcasing their craft, such as a pottery wheel and painting.

Ball State students are able to purchase pre-sale tickets for A Taste of Muncie at a student discount of $15 or $20 at the door.
