Indy Chicken & Beer Festival Lands on Monument Circle for Year 2

After a sold out 2021, Indianapolis-based tech company, EatHere, a restaurant a food discovery platform, is taking over Monument Circle for the 2022 Indy Chicken & Beer Festival. 

For one day only, we’re bringing together Indy’s best and brightest restaurants, chefs and brewers, including tastes from staples like Ale Emporium, weekend-only pop-up Black Lemon, one-of-a-kind delivery favorite ClusterTruck and so many more. Plus, we’re teaming up with Daredevil Brewing Co as the official beer sponsor to keep the drinks flowing! 

See Indy’s finest, August 6th. Tell some friends to get their tickets now before they’re gone.

Whether wings, pasta, tenders, tacos, pizza and more — chicken comes in every shape, size, variety and flavor. So if you’re looking for a finger lickin’ good time, this is the place for you. 

Our blueprint is simple. We team up with some of our favorite local restaurants, chefs and brewers to celebrate all things chicken and beer.

“We are incredibly grateful to our participants and partners for allowing us to bring back this festival which will be bigger and better than ever,” said EatHere co-founder & CEO Bradley Houser. “Monument Circle is one of the most premiere gathering places symbolizing our city.
