One of the city’s largest and most popular summer celebrations, the Taste of Lincoln Avenue celebrated its BIG 35 Years in 2018!
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 Chicago’s original club scene, today the neighborhood is home to many of the city’s 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 30 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 live entertainment, art and crafts activities, carnival-style games, face painting, and much more!
The Taste of Lincoln Avenue is Wrightwood’s annual fundraiser. The Taste began in 1984, as a way to help fund the Wrightwood Neighbors Association, and to provide financial support for our local schools and organizations through grants. It began with crowds of 10,000 attendees and has now grown to more than 50,000 visitors for the two-day event.
The 2018 Taste Of Lincoln Avenue Chicago will be held from noon to 10 PM Saturday July 28th and Sunday July 29th. Located on Lincoln Avenue between Fullerton and Wrightwood, the event includes food and craft vendors, live entertainment stages, Wine & Whiskey Tastings, and a great Kids’ Carnival Area.
