Chicago, the third most populous city of the United States, located on Lake Michigan, in the state of Illinois, is a land of over 400 festivals. Especially, during summer, Chicago experiences a tourist footfall of more than 300,000. However, for the hardcore foodie, Chicago is a land of mouthwatering dishes and vintage drinks. Tourists from near and far flock together every year to relish delicious cuisines and beverages of the various food festivals in Chicago especially the Chicago food truck festival, beer tasting events, baking workshops, Gourmet Festival and much more.
One of the most notable food festivals in Chicago has to be the Chicago food truck festival where renowned mobile eateries from all over the city gather in South Loop to serve finger licking delicacies. The menu includes not only commonplace pizza, burgers and tacos but also modern polish cuisine like the pierogi and some rare flavours like lobster rolls. The Chicago food truck Festival is most befittingly, the largest international food truck festival. The Lincoln Park Greek Fest gives you a taste of genuine Greek food with live music and dance for company. Dishes like gyros, baklava and hummus top the menu. Wingout Chicago is all about wings which happen to be a Chicago speciaiity. Honey BBQs to mango habañero, nothing is missed by the wings lover who visits this festival.
Chicago food festival is incomplete without the Taste of Chicago which is the world’s largest food festival taking place in Grant Park since 1980. This event features famous food trucks, famed restaurants and special appearances by top chefs along with live music by big celebrities. Admission to this festival is free and open to all age groups. Among various food events in Chicago, the 6 Corner BBQ Fest is the perfect one for meat lovers. With ribs, pork and beef to savour, play area for kids and cool music to cheer, this fest sums up a perfect getaway for the weekend. And now for the hot dog cravings, Chicago presents the Dog Days of Summer, the ultimate hot dog festival accompanied by live music and beer. A great place to chill out with family and friends, this festival brings together some of the best hot dog restaurants like the Hot Doug’s.
The most popular beverage in Chicago being beer, it is inevitable to mention some of the famous beer events in Chicago. Chicago Gourmet is the best wine and high-end food festival of Chicago which should not be missed at any cost. Celebrity chefs share their world-famous recipes and interact with the crowd. This is accompanied by a wine and cocktail tasting ceremony where new drinks are unveiled each year by top sommeliers. Cider Summit Chicago is one of the largest cider festivals which flaunts more than 150 ciders to choose from. This event also features a cider cocktail lounge. The Chicago Wine Fest is an annual event that brings forth over 35 wines to taste from all over the world paired with cheese. This event also stars a dozen fun contests throughout. The Christmas & Winter Beer Festival at Delilah's is titled as the most extensive beer tasting event. With more than 100 varieties from around the globe and various vintages of each, even beer nerds cannot ask for more. Such is the diversity of food and drink events in Chicago that foodies of all kinds may return home with empty pockets but never with empty bellies!
