While the festival will not take place in Grant Park this year due to COVID-19, Taste of Chicago will continue to showcase the diversity of Chicago's dining scene, support local nonprofits and frontline workers and delight our fans through new and reimagined events, including

  • An expanded Taste of Chicago “Community Eats” program will support 25 neighborhood restaurants and food trucks while providing free meals to nonprofit organizations serving healthcare and other frontline workers.
  • Online cooking demonstrations with local chefs
  • A Food Truck Procession from downtown to various locations


The Taste of Chicago is the nation's premier free-admission food festival showcasing the diversity of Chicago's dining scene, alongside a smorgasbord of cooking demonstrations, music concerts, art activations and family fun.
