Hats & Horses – Food & Beverage Vendor Program

The Junior League of Indianapolis (JLI) is offering an opportunity for local restaurants, chefs, and beverage providers to showcase their business during our Hats & Horses event.  Hats & Horses is a derby-inspired event offering an evening with perfect-pairings of food and beverage tastings, live music by Tastes Like Chicken, and more.  Our guests will be dressed in derby attire and outrageous hats!

This exposure allows you to promote your craft and attract new customers, while providing guests the chance to savor unique flavors, try new cuisines, and discover hidden culinary gems in our community.

Beyond the festivities of Hats & Horses, the key factor of this event is to raise awareness of, and funds for, the JLI, our mission and programing for women leaders, and dedication through volunteerism with our community partners.  The JLI has committed to the health and education of children and their families for the past century and is currently focused on supporting youth in foster and kinship care.

Are you ready to embark on this journey as a food/beverage partner?  Contact FDvendor@Jlindy.org and join us in crafting a brighter future together. Your involvement is not just your attendance; it’s a step towards empowerment, collaboration, and lasting impact.


From the beginning, the plans and programs we’ve developed and implemented, the awareness we’ve built for important causes, the money we’ve raised for the Indianapolis community, have all required an essential ingredient: valuable partnerships, alliances, and sponsorships with key organizations, agencies, officials, philanthropies, and corporations—at the local and state levels.
