Ramp Fest 2024

April 21 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Ramp Fest Returns for Its Second Year: A Culinary Celebration Benefiting Community Causes

After a successful debut, Ramp Fest is back for its second year, promising another unparalleled culinary experience at Kan-Kan Cinema & Restaurant located in the Windsor Park neighborhood.

Building on the success of the inaugural Ramp Fest, this year’s event boasts another impressive lineup of culinary delights. Attendees will have the privilege of savoring small bite dishes prepared by the area’s top chefs. Having high profile chefs is important, but what is more important is that this festival is for the community with partial ticket proceeds going to support the Greg Hardesty Scholarship, ACLU Indiana, and the Flanner House. Participating chefs include:

  • Michael Conley, Kan-Kan Cinema & Restaurant
  • Oya Woodruff, Chef’s Oya’s The TRAP
  • Brady Foster, World Championship of Food & Foster’s Catering (Placed second in the semifinal and seventh in the world for the “Rice & Noodle” category for the 2023 World Championship of Food)
  • Erin Kem & Logan McMahan, Nicole Taylor’s Pasta + Market + Backroom Eatery
  • Samir & Rachel Mohammad, 9th Street Bistro (2023 James Beard notable)
  • Becky Hostetter, formerly of Duos Indy
  • Brittney Baxter, Eat Surreal
  • Paul Dickens, Paul’s Kitchen
  • Esteban Rosas & Gabriel Sanudo, Julieta Taco Shop
  • Youssef Boudarine, Bluebeard + J’adore Pastry
  • Josh & Julie Baker, The Open Fire
  • Alan Sternberg, Bluebeard (2016 & 2018 James Beard notable)
  • Chris Benedyk, Love Handle
  • Whitney Barnett, Positive Foodie Vibes
  • Lindsey Nowlin & Lauren Warfield- The Model ChefRamp Fest isn’t just about showcasing culinary excellence; it’s also a celebration of community, justice, education, and sustainability. Ramps, a wild onion native to the region, take center stage in the dishes, offering a unique and savory twist to each creation. By purchasing a ticket, attendees contribute to the Greg Hardesty scholarship fund, ACLU Indiana’s defense of civil liberties, and Flanner House’s initiatives for community development, food access, and sustainable urban farming.

Join us for a culinary celebration that goes beyond the plate and makes a positive impact on our community!
