Nowadays, popcorn comes in a variety of flavors, but Chicago-style popcorn provides the best of both worlds, a little salty sweet goodness. A mixture of cheddar and caramel popcorn, this particular combination is surely the best. But don't take our word for it! Inspired by Orville Redenbacher, who chose Porter County as the place to develop his world-famous popcorn in the 1950's, the Valparaiso Popcorn Festival blends arts, crafts, a popcorn parade, music, games, and of course plenty of delicious popcorn into the region’s most popular event which is held every September.
