2019 Taste of Lincoln Avenue - Wine and Whiskey Tasting
By far one of Chicago’s largest and most popular summer celebrations, the Taste of Lincoln Avenue will be celebrating its 36th year in 2019! This iconic event sprawls over six city blocks on a major artery in the heart of Lincoln Park where this popular neighborhood meets the vibrant DePaul University population. Once home to Chicago’s original club scene, today the neighborhood boasts many of the city’s most acclaimed theaters, music venues and restaurants. Taste of Lincoln Avenue began as a small neighborhood fundraiser and has grown to become the one of the largest street festival in the city.
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 and Whiskey Tastings. Ticketed tasting sessions are held several times over the weekend.
