The Chicago Food Truck Fest- June 24 & 25, 2017
The city of Chicago is known for a lot of things. It is commonly known as “the windy city”, “the second city”, and even “Chi-Town”. Many would also unofficially consider Chicago as one of the best food towns in the country. It is the home of the Chicago deep dish pizza and the Chicago style hot dogs. You can experience many of Chicago’s own food traditions, along with the history of the food truck. This year the Chicago Food Truck Fest will take place on June 24 and June 25, at the South Loop. The festival will be held at 1600 S. Wabash Ave. This Chicago event will feature over 50 of the best food trucks in the area.
The Chicago Food Truck Fest is one of the most diverse food events that you can experience. You can savor the tastes of Chicago with the pizza and beef food trucks or you can try something entirely different from steak entrees to unique BBQ dishes. Finish off the day with a savory dessert from one of the many cupcake or donuts trucks. No matter what your food preferences or restrictions are, you are sure to find something that is worth visiting for.
This Chicago food truck fest boasts much more than delicacies of all cuisines. Live music will keep you moving and dancing throughout the night. Beer and wine will be served at many of the food trucks to add to the entertainment of the weekend. You can also purchase goodies of all kinds to remember your food truck experience, including unique T shirts. Also, be sure to test out your skills at one of the many games throughout the weekend.
