Summer in Chicago is a season of festivals, as Chicagoans take advantage of the beautiful weather after a long winter. This weekend marks the beginning of the summer, and with it, a host of delicious street fests! The Taste of Chicago ("Taste") is the city's premier food festival, but many neighborhoods and cultures will gather this summer to host their own "Taste Of..."! Here are some of this weekend's highlights:
- June 2-4: Lincon Park Greek Fest
Located on the 2700th block of Sheffield, this popular festival boasts all your favorite traditional Greek plates, from gyros to baklava. The festival also has Greek dance performances and music. The Greek word "kefi" describes a fun and lively atmosphere, which you will certainly find this weekend!
- June 2-4: Tase of Little Village: Flavors of Mexico
Located at 26th & California, this popular street festival hosts almost a dozen highly-rated and popular Chicago restuarants serving authentic Mexican cuisine. Carnival rides, arts/crafts, and lively music are a perfect backdrop to this annual event.
- June 3-4: Wingout Chicago
If you're a fan of chicken wings and block parties, stop by the Old Town wing fest this weekend! Tickets for Saturday are sold out, but spend your Sunday tasting wings, sampling beers, and listening to live reggae bands. Purchase tickets here!
