Fire up the grills for the Midwest’s best Patty Party!

At least a handful of Chicago eateries will be partners in the tasty annual happening when Roscoe Village Burger Fest returns for its 14th mouth-watering year this September. Trust us when we say that they go to extraordinary lengths to impress burger aficionados.

When you add in two stages of rockin’ music, arts & crafts and the action-packed “Kids Zone” area, sizzling hot is the only way to describe this wildly popular Windy City food and music street happening.

In addition, over the weekend visitors even have the opportunity to vote for Chicago’s Best Burger!

A $10 suggested fest donation benefits the invaluable programs and services of the Lakeview Roscoe Village Chamber of Commerce.
