The Taste of Chicago will begin tomorrow, July 9 in Grant Park. Many were not aware as this is not the usual time for the Taste. This year it will go on from July 9th to the 13th. This year will include many new pop up restaurants & food truck options, along with many of the yearly expected favorites.
Along with the many available taste options, there will also be performers in the Petrillo Music Shell. Most notably on Thursday, July 10th Janelle Monae will be performing & on Sunday July 13th Aloe Blacc will be gracing the stage. We will be attending these 2 performances & providing press for the event. As always lawn seating is free, but to get up close & personal you will need to purchase tickets.
There will also be a Made In Chicago Market, the Bud Light stage for local artists, In The Kitchen with Mariano’s, & the Pure Leaf Chef Du Jour, one of which will be Andrew Zimmerman from Bizarre Foods.

The Taste is one of our city’s great traditions & though it has changed over the last few years, it has always been a go to event for the summer. So let’s come out, taste some great good, enjoy some good music & enjoy the good weather. It is a great opportunity to go out for some summer fun. Hopefully we will see you there.
