Amazing food and music parties in three Chicago neighborhoods in June; this is what Taste of Chicago promises as the event returns this year after a hiatus caused by the pandemic Covi-19. Scheduled to be held on June 11, 2022, in the Grant Park. Other neighborhood taste pop-ups will occur on consecutive Saturdays, June 18 and June 25. Taste of Chicago will showcase dozens of Chicago’s best foodie experiences and live music performances. 

The festival,  which serves as a summer staple for more than 40 years, attracts hundreds of thousands of people every year. In this edition,  the Taste of Chicago 2022 is expected to repeat the same number of visitors since the country is slowly recovering from the pandemic-induced break.

The annual event is an opportunity for the attendees to delight in the flavors of Chicago, the city’s specialities and international cuisine and some of the best Chicago restaurants, pop-up spots and food trucks across the area. In addition, visitors can enjoy local artists and their work, catch performances from local dance companies, and hear live music from big-name acts.

According to the organizers of the event, Taste of Chicago is admission free.

The organizers have also informed that guests can purchase tickets for food and beverages in strips of 14 for $10. Tickets can be used to buy taste-size and full-size portions from any of the many food vendors. Every vendor offers small “taste” portions that are between 1 and 6 tickets (around $3). Through those samples, visitors will have the opportunity to meet dishes from the best restaurants in Chicago. 

The line-up has not been disclosed yet. Follow the social media handles of the festival for updates.

In order to ensure the safety and health of the attendees and the staff, the festival organizers will check for the quality of the food from different vendors.

The event does not require vaccination proof and the use of face masks from the guests. However, the organizers advise visitors to keep the mask on while inside the festival grounds unless actively eating or drinking.
