This weekend is full of events for White River State Park!

Dig IN 2012 Logo

 

On Sunday, August 26 in the Celebration plaza we will be hosting Dig IN: A Taste of Indiana, one of the most important events this summer.

 

Starting in 2009, this event is a way to appreciate the agriculture in Indiana and enlighten those that forget that we have more than corn in this state!

Dig IN brings Indiana growers, farmers, brewers, vintners, and other artisans from all over the state to White River State Park.

People will be allowed to sample various foods, drinks, and produce of their choice for free (included in the ticket price.)

Along with samples of the different foods and drinks there will also be chances to watch chefs create their masterpieces right in front of you, several different presentations on healthy choices when cooking at home, organic options, and plenty more.

Show your Indiana pride and come to White River State Park for some great food, great beer, and even better wine!

For more information on the event visit www.digindiana.org.

This event asks that you buy one ticket ($30 in advance and $40 at gate) and the rest of the day is free. You can buy tickets online here: http://digin2012.eventbrite.com/ or stop by the White River State Park Visitor’s Center to purchase in person.

The legend has come back to White River State Park!

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park!

Bob Dylan will be scheduled to perform at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn on Saturday, August 25, 2012.

Performing for the past 50 years Dylan is still aweing the audience with his poetic lyrics and refreshing rhythms.

Known for his whole career, Dylan is best known for his political, philosophical, and poetic lyrics that have led to various Hall of Fame placements, awards, and even a Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.

During the social unrest from the civil war Dylan became and still is an idol to several and his anti-war songs are still being used today.

Starting out as a Jewish freshman in college in 1959 Bob Dylan has certainly made a name for himself and White River State Park is honored to have him perform for us again. Come out and enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity and enjoy the talent Dylan will shower the audience with on Saturday!

Dukes of September

Dukes of September at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park

Donald Fagen, Michael McDonald, and Boz Scaggs are bringing their talent to the  Farm  Bureau Insurance Lawn on Friday, August 24 as the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue.

This supergroup brings the jazz, blues, and soul this summer’s concert series has been needing at White River State Park. These three plan to bring back songs from their previous career as The New York Rock and Soul Revue as well as several covers they have picked up along the years.

To explain a little bit about this supergroup, Donald Fagen was the co-founder of Steely Dan alongside Walter Becker in his early career. After the two split in 1981, Fagen went through his solo career which brought him three albums and another on the way.

Michael McDonald is a 5 time Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter. His career with Steely Dan led him to another successful career in the Doobie Brothers until 1982. Along with various appearances and performances for his solo career McDonald is hard at work with the current tour.

Boz Scaggs started out in the Steve Miller Band and went on to focus on a solo career. After a small hiatus in the 1980’s he continues to record his own music and hop along this tour that will bring them all here to Indianapolis!

It wasn’t until 2010 that Fagen, McDonald, and Scaggs agreed to bring back the music and hit the road for touring after The New York Rock and Soul Revue split ways in 1993. This show will certainly bring back memories from a decade ago and refresh the audience with a variety of music.

Did you know??

Michael McDonald was hired as an additional singer in the early 1970’s tours of Steely Dan because Donald Fagen had severe stage fright.

William Royce is the actual name given to Boz Scaggs. In his early years a schoolmate gave him the nickname “Bosley” which eventually led to Boz.

Welcome to the Indiana State Fair

Welcome to the Indiana State Fair

While celebrating the year of the dairy cow at the Indiana State Fair during the next two weeks, be sure to stop by and visit Team WRSP in the Exposition Hall by the Midway!

While at the Fair, White River State Park will have park information and Indiana travel guides and maps to pick up! The Department of Tourism booth is your one stop shop for both WRSP guides and great Indiana information.

We will be there every day through Monday and then again next Friday and Saturday, giving you plenty of opportunities to come say hello!

As always, surveys will be available for WRSP fans to win free concert tickets or tickets to our many attractions. And of course, if you feel like dropping off some deep fried Oreos when you visit, we wouldn’t mind that either.

Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | July 29, 2012 | www.inwhiteriver.com

Florence + the Machine at The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park

Florence + the Machine at The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park

A sold out show brought thousands of people out to the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn July 29 to experience Florence & the Machine.

The Walkmen were the perfect band to warm up the stage with upbeat songs to get the audience on their feet dancing.

Florence awed the crowd in her long flowing dress and vocals that sounded as though one was casually listening to her CD.

Some of the songs performed were Dog days are over, Shake it up, What the water gave me, and others from her newest album.

The energy provided from the band was easily seen as Florence pranced and danced onstage and even offstage throughout the crowd.

A grateful Florence even gained a small treasure box from a fan before leaving the stage.

This is the second time Florence & the Machine have joined us and we hope that next year we can be gifted with their presence again for all that missed it!
