History on Tap, a popular event at Conner Prairie geared toward adults, will return May 31 for its eighth year.
“It offers the opportunity to experience a craft beer festival and the beautiful grounds and engage in programs they typically wouldn’t have the opportunity to engage with at Conner Prairie,” said Andrew Collins, Research and Strategic Analytics manager. “Since the event is 21-plus, it allows interpreters and staff to get creative and engage an entirely adult audience.”
Approximately 35 breweries are expected to participate. Collins said the event is opening up to all of Prairietown this year.
“The event just continues to grow both in scope and in depth,” Collins said. “It is planned by the Horizon Council, which is Conner Prairie’s young professional group. It was one of the first events that group brainstormed and executed, and there were 300 attendees the first year to over 1,500 last year. We are hoping to equip 2,000 this year.”
Flights on the 1859 balloon voyage will be offered for an additional cost.
“People have always really appreciated the opportunity to get up in our balloon and watch the sunset,” Collins said.
General admission is $40 and runs from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Premium admission begins at 6 p.m. and is $55. VIP admission is $70 and begins at 5:30 p.m. with a catered buffet dinner. Designated driver tickets are $15.
