Ivy Tech's 100 Mile Brunch

Get ready for a gourmet brunch featuring products obtained within a 100-mile radius of Conner Prairie!

Chef Jeffery Alan Bricker and his talented students from Ivy Tech’s Hospitality Administration program are back to prepare a gourmet brunch featuring products obtained within a 100-mile radius of Conner Prairie.

The program begins with a special reception at the Golden Eagle Inn – in Prairietown – featuring historic recipes prepared by Conner Prairie’s Foodways staff. Then, move into Conner Prairie's beautiful Overlook Room for brunch.

Join us for this encore of last year's wildly popular event.

Check out photos from last year's 100 Mile Brunch.

Golden Eagle Inn at 1836 Prairietown
In the early 19th century, folks in Indiana took advantage of the bounty of autumn – the apple – and brought its natural sweetness into their food and drink. Lend a hand to Prairietown residents the Zimmermans at the Golden Eagle Inn as they press fresh cider from the last of the season’s harvest, and get a taste of one of history’s most versatile and enduring flavors.
