Chicago's Grant Park turns into foodie heaven in July. View on Map


From 10 July 2013 To 14 July 2013


Grant Park, Chicago

Everyone knows that Chicago is a fabulous place to enjoy food - you can get everything from deep dish pizzas to fantastic hot dogs and steaks.

However, anyone staying in Chicago hotels this summer may think they have died and gone to foodie heaven.

This is because the metropolis will once again be welcoming back the Taste of Chicago Festival, which will be taking place from July 10th to 14th 2013 in Grant Park.

An annual event begun in 1980, it has since become the world's largest outdoor food fest, according to the organizers.

Thousands of locals and tourists alike descend on the park every year to try out hundreds of menu items from an array of restaurants and food vendors.

Not only this, but there will also be live music to entertain you as you wander around between 11.00 a.m. and 9.00 p.m. CDT.

The park is just nine minutes' drive from the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago, so hopping in a taxi there and back could be the best option.
