One of the city’s largest and most popular summer celebrations, the Taste of Lincoln Avenue will be celebrating its BIG 30th in 2013!
This iconic event sprawls over six city blocks on a major artery in the heart of Lincoln Park where high incomes meet the vibrant DePaul University population. Once home to Chicagos original club scene, today the neighborhood is home to many of the citys acclaimed theaters and music venues as well as top restaurants.
Taste of Lincoln Avenue began as a small neighborhood fundraiser and has grown to become the second largest street festival in the region. The event features more than 250 vendors and more than 40 music acts on four stages. Every music genre is represented: from blues and country to rock and folk.
Another up-and-coming Taste of Lincoln Avenue highlight is the “Lill Street Craft Fair,” a juried art event featuring unique DIY and handmade art.
There’s also a wildly popular one-block “Kids’ Carnival” area with entertainment, art activities, pony rides, a petting zoo and much more.
