DCASE

Taste of Chicago’s full lineup of food vendors and musical entertainment was announced Tuesday morning by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE).

Returning as a multi-date, multi-location event, festival admission will be free of charge and once again food vendors will be accepting only credit cards or cash in lieu of traditional food/beverage tickets. The festival will also feature SummerDance lessons and each location will have family-fun activities for kids of all ages.

Festival pop-up dates are June 11 in Austin; June 18 in Pullman; June 25 in Little Village; and a “bite-sized” Taste in Grant Park running July 8-10.

At Grant Park, more than 30 vendors will be serving up food from across the city. Three stages will present music sets and dance instruction.

“After an all-virtual Taste in 2020 and community pop-ups in 2021, we are thrilled to bring Taste back to Grant Park and back into our neighborhoods in 2022,” said DCASE Commissioner Erin Harkey in the official announcement. “We are excited to showcase the food and music of Pullman, Austin and Little Village this summer.”
