Taste of Chicago is the world’s largest food festival. Previously held over five days in July in Grant Park, the city moved the popular event to September 8-10 in 2023. This year's Taste will also take over Humboldt Park June 24, Pullman Park July 15 and Marquette Park August 5. This event is basically a smorgasbord of gastronomic treats, as the city’s cooking community comes together in one area. From food trucks to restaurants that set up tents, there are literally hundreds of menu items to choose from, including:

  • Dia de los Tomales
  • Celtic corn on the cob
  • Coconut shrimp
  • S’mores Smush cheesecake

And, of course, there are the traditional Chicago mainstays such as deep-dish pizza, Chicago-style hotdogs and Italian beef. This family-friendly event also happens to be the largest festival in Chicago, and it’s about more than just food. Other attractions include:

  • Live music on multiple stages
  • Pavilions
  • Film showings

In addition to delicious eats, the Taste of Chicago attracts a lot of top international talent, as well as up-and-coming local acts. Weezer, Erykah Badu and Robin Thicke have all headlined the festival in past years. If you plan on visiting this extraordinary event, you’re not alone. There can be as many as 1.5 million visitors over the weekend, which means Chicago’s commercial airports will be busier than normal.
