Taste of Chicago is back!

This July, watch for an all-new and delicious edition of Taste of Chicago from Friday, July 8 to Sunday, July 10, 2022.

In recent years, health concerns transformed Taste of Chicago into a venue of pop-up food trucks, but this year the traditional food and music fest returns to Grant Park in the grand old Chicago style!

This year, other "mini-tastes" will be featured throughout the city in various other Chicago neighborhoods including Austin, Pullman and Little Village (on June 11, 28 and 25, respectively) for a month-long taste extravaganza.

What else is new in 2022? You won't have to pay upfront for paper tickets this year as the fest switches to direct cash or credit payments only.

Just up ahead, check out the complete schedule including times and dates of music acts, along with a list of Chicago restaurants and food vendors participating this year. Have fun!

All about Taste of Chicago

It was a casual affair that lasted only a day when it was first launched In 1980 by a group of Chicago restaurateurs. It has since grown to become the nation's largest outdoor food festival drawing almost 4 million people each year.

Taste of Chicago (locally known as "The Taste") traditionally happens over a long weekend in early July -- as the city gears up to welcome visitors from metro Chicago, around the U.S., and worldwide.

The big attraction? The food, of course! Chicago-style pizza and hot dogs as well polish sausage and dozens of other ethnic specialties are the star of the show as over 70 restaurants from around Chicagoland offer up more than 300 of their menu's best dishes to an appreciative audience.

Admission is free to Taste of Chicago, although food is avaiilable to purchase.
