Brunch Festivals – Who Knew They Were On-Trend?
Food festivals are a big part of the culinary tourism trend. One thing we’ve noticed recently is a rise in the popularity of brunch festivals.
The Food Channel recently covered Baby Got Brunch in Indianapolis. This 21+ event was the first of its type for the city, highlighting Indy’s most innovative restaurant brunch menus.
The mission of Baby Got Brunch was two-fold: promote restaurants with innovative brunch menus and raise funds for The Patachou Foundation. This organization fights food insecurity by putting wholesome foods in the hands of Indianapolis school children.
