Taste of Carmel is the largest indoor food experience in Hamilton County. Now in its 17th year, more than 1,000 guests will come together to sample food & libations from nearly 50 vendors to benefit Orchard Park Elementary (OPE), Carmel’s first elementary school.

All proceeds from Taste of Carmel benefit the students, staff and families of Orchard Park Elementary (OPE), helping to provide resources and programming, and helping to fund 85% of the budget for the following school year.
