In a city of street fests, one would be hard-pressed to find one more iconic than Taste of Lincoln Avenue.
It’s legendary for many reasons. Celebrating its 36th year in 2019, it’s easily one of the city’s oldest summer happenings Another is its sheer size. The fest sprawls over several city blocks in the heart of the vibrant Lincoln Park/DePaul neighborhood.
And like a fine wine it has aged well (and expanded) over the years. It offers lots of fun things beyond its 100 food, arts/crafts and other vendors. These include:
- Two stages of great music featuring both national and regional acts.
- For families there’s the wildly popular (and free entry) “Kids’ Carnival” area open each afternoon that features entertainment, art activities, pony rides, kiddie rides and more.
- For adults there’s the popular Wine, Whiskey & Tequila Tastings. Ticketed tasting sessions are held several times over the weekend.
The bottomline? When it comes enjoying summer in the Windy City, Taste of Lincoln Avenue should be at the top of everyone’s list!
SPECIAL IN 2019! When you donate $10 at the gate (benefits Wrightwood Neighbors Association), a beverage of your choice is included! A win-win for everyone!
