English: Taste of Chicago

Since I live in Chicago, I always go to the annual Taste of Chicago in Grant Park. I have been doing this for too many years to mention. I love the food, the music and the cooking demonstrations.

Every summer since 1980, Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park on the city’s magnificent lakefront has been home to the world’s largest food festival.When my sons were babies, I brought them to the Taste of Chicago in their double stroller. Now that my older son is married, he can go to the Taste of Chicago with his children.
