Chicago’s sweet summer vibe will be in full swing when Taste of Lincoln Avenue, one of the Windy City’s most iconic (and pioneering) street fests, returns for its 35th fun-filled year to the heart of the Lincoln Park/DePaul neighborhood.
Stretching over several city blocks and side streets on the eponymous strip of Lincoln Avenue between Fullerton and Wrightwood, highlights include nearly 20 music acts on two stages, a stand-alone “Kids’ Carnival” area, plus plenty of food, libations and arts & crafts.
In total, the fest features more than 60 merchants, artists, community group and food/drink booths. The always-popular Kids’ Carnival, held from Noon-6:00 p.m. each afternoon on Altgeld between Lincoln and Halsted (free entrance from Halsted), features inflatables, art activities galore, pony rides, kiddie carnival rides and much more.
This year's event will also bring back and wine and whiskey tastings. Look for more information soon!
