“The Cultural Trail is the most authentic way to experience downtown Indianapolis,” said Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. Executive Director, Kären Haley. “Food is a part of the culture of Indianapolis and the Indianapolis culinary scene has exploded in the past few years. Many of the best restaurants in town have opened on the Cultural Trail so it was a natural fit.”

Cultural Trail food tours combine the uniqueness of the Indianapolis Cultural Trail with a behind the scenes look at the restaurants and chefs that are gaining national attention and providing delicious, local food experiences.  Proceeds from Indy Cultural Trail Food Tours support the chefs and restaurants that provide the food for the tour and are also invested back into the Cultural Trail’s operations and maintenance program.  The eight-mile Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene and Marilyn Glick is operated by Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. a 501c3, not-for-profit organization.  

Jolene Ketzenberger of EatDrinkIndy partnered with the Cultural Trail to curate the Indy Cultural Trail Food Tours and is also one of the experienced, local food experts guiding the tours.  Ketzenberger said, “I love exploring a city through its food, and that’s what our new food tours along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail let you do. You get to meet chefs, restaurateurs, bartenders, and distillers, try some delicious food and drink and explore the city. What a cool way to spend the afternoon!”
