In a city of street fests, one would be hard-pressed to find one more iconic than the 39th annual Taste of Lincoln Avenue.

And like a fine wine it has aged well over the years. It offers lots of fun things beyond its many food, arts/crafts and other vendors. This year’s fest includes:

  • An amazing line-up from bands all over the Midwest.
  • Local food favorites that you’ve definitely missed over the last year.
  • Arts & crafts galore!
  • An afternoon whiskey tasting brought to you by one of the leaders of the industry.
  • Kids’ Carnival is BACK with non-stop activities for your littles including inflatables, arts/crafts and performances.

The bottomline? When it comes enjoying summer in the Windy City, Taste of Lincoln Avenue should be at the top of everyone’s list!
