What’s Going on at the Taste of Chicago Today? (July 7, 2021)

Though many of Chicago’s favorite street and music festivals are primed to return to the city this summer, not all of them will look the same. Perhaps no more evident of that is the reimagined Taste of Chicago that began this week in a pop-up or to-go type rendition of the most iconic food festival in the world.

Each day we’ll deliver the events around-the-city schedule so you know what you need to do in order to experience this new-look version of the Taste of Chicago!
