2013 Taste of Chicago Description

Taste of Chicago - Food & Drink Event | Food Festival | Music Festival in Chicago.

The largest food festival in the world and one of the most-visited tourist attractions in the entire state of Illinois, Taste of Chicago is a multi-day event that routinely attracts more than a quarter-million people to Grant Park for a chance to stuff their faces with a whole lot of delicious grub.

Normally held for ten days in July, Taste of Chicago has been going strong since the first festival was held in 1980, with often more than 70 local food vendors setting up their stalls in the park and selling Chicago-style pizza, Chicago hot dogs, barbecued ribs, Italian Beef, Maxwell Street Polish Sausage, Eli's Cheesecake, and a variety of ethnic and regional foods.

Non-food-related events at Taste of Chicago include live music on multiple stages, with acts varying from local artists to nationally known names like Carlos Santana, Moby, and Kenny Rogers. Movie screenings are also routinely on the docket.

But food at Taste of Chicago is definitely the biggest draw, and the event’s popularity has even prompted other cities to create their own versions, including the Taste of the Danforth in Toronto, the Taste of Kalamazoo, Taste of Cincinnati, Taste of Addison, Taste of Denver, Taste in Dallas, Taste of Madison, and the Taste of Austin.

Taste of Chicago is free-to-attend; prices at each of the different vendors vary.
