2015 Chicago Summer Events – Food Edition Part 3

Since it’s early in the week, we decided to take a break from drinking and cover some more food events going on this summer. Many of these events will focus on the neighborhoods in Chicago, so it’s a great way to get out of the typical tourist activities and see Chicago. Tomorrow we start our summer music coverage. For now let’s eat!


[schema type=”event” evtype=”FoodEvent” url=”http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dca/supp_info/nghdfest37.html” name=”Pilsen Food Truck Festival” sdate=”2015-06-06″ edate=”2015-06-07″ street=”18th St. and Allport St.” city=”Chicago” state=”IL” postalcode=”60608″ country=”US” ]

While not as big as the Food Truck Festival going on at US Cellular Field this summer, this one will still be a great event for tasting food from the best food trucks around town. Pilsen is a really unique and cool neighborhood that not many visitors get a chance to experience. It’s a little off the beaten path, but it’s worth visiting. Some of the best Mexican restaurants are located in Pilsen and this event is sure to feature some fantastic Mexican cuisines.

[schema type=”event” evtype=”FoodEvent” url=”http://thefrontierchicago.com/events-tickets/” name=”Frontier Crawfish Boil” sdate=”2015-05-30″ edate=”2015-06-21″ street=”1072 N. Milwaukee Ave” city=”Chicago” state=”IL” postalcode=”60642″ country=”US” ]

We really wanted to mention this event since it’s basically down the street from Holiday Jones. Get a little taste of Louisiana at this event. Hosted by the Frontier Restaurant, this crawfish boil will be as close to a New Orleans party as you can get. Be careful of the hurricanes.


[schema type=”event” evtype=”Festival” url=”http://tasterandolph.com/” name=”Taste of Randolph Street” sdate=”2015-06-19″ edate=”2015-06-21″ street=”900 W Randolph St” city=”Chicago” state=”IL” postalcode=”60608″ country=”US” ]

This event is a perfect lead in event for our next edition on music events. While It’s called the Taste of Randolph street and there will be local restaurants supplying food, this event is more about the music lineup. There are some big bands playing at the Taste of Randolph. We’ll go into more detail about this music event along with many others in our upcoming music editions for the 2015 Summer Events coverage.
