Food aficionados will be in taste heaven as this celebration of South-of-the-Border cuisine returns for its fifth year to the Midwest’s largest Mexican community. Held on 26th Street in the heart of the Little Village neighborhood, Taste of Mexico is a three-day culinary extravaganza that will appeal to Chicagoans from every background.

One highlight will, of course, be nearly 20 neighborhood and other local restaurants selling authentic Mexican street foods including tacos, flautas, enchiladas, tortas, gorditas and more. There’s also a non-stop music/entertainment stage as well as arts & crafts for lovers of  both Mexican foods and culture. And for kids and families, there’s a large carnival ride area.
