Minority Guest Chef Program

More than ever it is important that we support local independent food entrepreneurs. That is why Pacers Sports & Entertainment and Levy have partnered with local minority chefs who are part of the eclectic culinary experience that makes Indianapolis a national food hub!

During select games of the 2022-23 Pacers season, guest chefs will showcase their signature dishes at The Kitchen stand located on the Main Concourse of Gainbridge Fieldhouse (Section 17). Fans will have the opportunity to experience Indy’s amazing local food cultures and flavors!
