What can you find at the Grand Opening? Here's a look:


Your day starts with a Pop-Up Breakfast at the brand new Urschel Pavilion from 8-10:00 a.m.. Enjoy a special menu prepared by Chef Joe of Sage, as well as a live cooking demonstration by the man himself. The entire menu will be sourced from our very own Valparaiso Market- going along with our motto of "shop local, support local." In addition, all ticket holders will also take home recipe cards so they can try out and perfect this dish at home.
