Taste of Lincoln Avenue 2018

July 28, 2018 | 12:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Chicago’s sweet summer vibe will be in full swing when Taste of Lincoln Avenue, one of the Windy City’s most iconic (and pioneering) street fests, returns for its 35th fun-filled year to the heart of the Lincoln Park/DePaul neighborhood.

Stretching over several city blocks and side streets on the eponymous strip of Lincoln Avenue between Fullerton and Wrightwood, highlights include nearly 20 music acts on two stages, a stand-alone “Kids’ Carnival” area, plus plenty of food, libations and arts & crafts.

In addition, adults have options to sign up for ticketed afternoon wine and/or whiskey tastings in tented areas. With the purchase of a tasting pass they can either sample up to 15 wine varietals or 10 expertly-curated whiskies.

In total, the fest features more than 60 merchants, artists, community group and food/drink booths. The always-popular Kids’ Carnival, held from Noon-6:00 p.m. each afternoon on Altgeld between Lincoln and Halsted (free entrance from Halsted), features inflatables, art activities galore, pony rides, kiddie carnival rides and much more.
