These restaurants were a cornerstone contributor to Valparaiso’s events and festivals when they came together as friends nearly 15 years ago to create festivals and events on the court house lawn. Every event was innovative and unique. People would come downtown to the events never knowing what to expect. There was live music, dancing, Picasso on the Square (kids chalk art) and Confessions of a Chef… the downtown chefs cooking on the court house lawn. The festivals were best known for free food the Chefs shared with everyone there.

The spirit of working together became contagious in Valparaiso’s downtown. People started volunteering to support it’s cultural venues, such as the Poco Muse Museum, the Memorial Opera House and the Chicago Street Theatre. The Downtown Valpo Restaurants worked together to make the downtown a destination for outdoor dining and remarkable live music throughout the week. The city saw the progression and a town that loved it’s festivals and events. Valpo built a Central Park Amphitheater for festivals, a splash pad for kids, and a pavilion for year round fun that includes ice-skating and smaller venue events.

The chefs welcome you to visit their official Downtown Valpo Restaurants Events Page as your source for culture, food events, wine tasting, and the Valpo Farmers Market. You’ll also discover Valpo Events such as the Chocolate Walk, Summer Outdoor Movies, Valpo Art Festival, Summer Concert Series, Popcorn Festival, Brew Fest, and Holly Days. When you search, “Valpo events-next 3 days”, you’ll always find something to do in downtown Valparaiso.
