‘The quintessential summer event, Taste (as it’s known to the locals) appeals to all of your senses:
Walk through the Street Art & Graffiti Alley featuring live painting by local artists. The Stomping Grounds Chicago area will showcase performances by local dance companies. Watch a daily procession of The March of the Puppets. And so much more.
Iconic Buckingham Fountain, dazzling Lake Michigan and the magnificent skyline form the backdrop to this five-day event. Plan your trip today, and be sure to bring an appetite!
