If you are searching for a fun way to spend a lovely Saturday evening outdoors in the summer in northwest Indiana, get your tickets to the Summer Jam Music & Food Festival in downtown Valparaiso. This inaugural event, presented by Valparaiso Community Festivals & Events, will take place from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 27 at Central Park Plaza in the heart of town and feature live music from Blue Öyster Cult and other special guests. Here’s how you can best enjoy the Summer Jam:

Arrive Early!

General admission lawn tickets are only $10!  Be sure to arrive early to stake out the best spot for your family and friends. Bring a blanket and bag chairs and settle in for a fun afternoon. 

Come Hungry!

The Summer Jam isn’t just a music festival—there will be amazing food available for purchase by six of the Valpo Dining Group Restaurants. These unique, upscale eateries will also be taking part in a little friendly competition to win the favorite pork dish at the event. Bring your appetite so you can try these specialty dishes and vote for your favorite!

Enjoy the Luxury of Reserved Seating!

A limited number of reserved seats are available for music fans who want to sit right next to the stage. For only $30, you can book your chair today. This option is ideal for the hardcore Blue Öyster Cult fan who wants to sit as close as possible to the band.
