Calling all foodies! Are you ready to ‘taste’ Chicago, or rather Chicago’s finest restaurants? Well then, mark your calendars because on July 10-14 the City of Chicago’s biggest food festival takes over Grant Park: The Taste of Chicago. For five days you can eat like a king and visit any food lover’s paradise. We can already smell and taste the mouthwatering roasted corn, hot dogs, churros, barbecue and everything in between!

Admission into The Taste is free, however in order to buy food and drinks you will need to purchase tickets. For a bargain of $10 you can buy a bundle of 14 tickets. You can then use each ticket at different vendor booths, pop-up restaurants and food trucks to try samples of their best dishes.

The festival has 82 different food booths, such as: Billy Goat Tavern, Chicago’s Dog House, Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, Rainbow Cone LLC., Texas de Brazil, Buona Beef, Churro Factory, La Mexicana and lots more. With such a diverse range of food you will be sure to not only find options that the whole family will enjoy, but also leave utterly stuffed.

So, you’ve had enough food to feed an army, now what do you do? Well, worry no more because the Taste of Chicago also offers free music concerts. Grab a bite and drink and be sure to head over to the Goose Island Stage to listen to live music. Lawn seating is a first come first serve basis or you can purchase seats for each concert.
