 City of Chicago Announces 2022 Taste of Chicago

CHICAGO — Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) are pleased to announce the food
vendor and entertainment lineup for the 2022 Taste of Chicago, presented by John Deere. Established in 1980, this uniquely-Chicago summertime tradition returns with an impressive array of eateries showcasing the city’s culinary excellence and diversity. Along with delicious eats, attendees will
enjoy free admission to top tier musical talent, Chicago SummerDance lessons, family activities and more over six days of Taste of Chicago in the
neighborhoods of Austin (June 11), Pullman (June 18) and Little Village (June 25) and a bite-sized Taste of Chicago in Grant Park (July 8-10).

“Taste of Chicago is a celebration of our city’s incredible culinary scene and cultural vibrancy that attracts thousands of residents and tourists alike,” said Mayor Lightfoot. “I cannot wait to welcome everyone to this iconic festival and enjoy classic Chicago eats alongside new cutting-edge dishes. Year after year, I discover something new and have a great time, and I hope our revelers do too.”

“After an all-virtual Taste in 2020 and community pop-ups in 2021, we are thrilled to bring Taste back to Grant Park and back into our neighborhoods
in 2022,” shared DCASE Commissioner Erin Harkey. “We are excited to showcase the food and music of Pullman, Austin and Little Village this
summer, and spotlight other DCASE summertime traditions like Blues Festival and SummerDance in our programming. There’s something for everyone to enjoy at this year’s Taste, throughout the city.”

This June, Taste of Chicago expands with a series of three free events on consecutive Saturdays from noon to 8 p.m. in the Chicago neighborhoods
of Austin (June 11) featuring music by Soul City Blues, part of the Chicago Blues Festival; Pullman (June 18) featuring Chicago SummerDance; and
Little Village (June 25) showcasing the best flavors of the neighborhood. For more details, visit Tasteof- Chicago.us.
