Sam Adams Lakeview Taco FestName: Sam Adams Lakeview Taco FestDate: September 16, 2017 - September 17, 2017Website: Sam Adams Lakeview Taco FestEvent Description:
The glorious taco will again be in the spotlight when the tortilla-wrapped fave is celebrated at this annual flavor-filled food happening that returns for its fifth year in 2017. It’s also a celebration of seasonal beers as well as the start of autumn.
Whether one prefers their shells filled with traditional chicken, steak, chorizo and beef, or stuffed with imaginative ingredients such as mushrooms, seafood, goat and duck, this September fest in the bustling Southport Corridor has become a wildly popular fixture to the Windy City’s food fest scene. Each year well over a dozen local eateries challenge themselves to make the tastiest tacos.
The fest also features special beer and taco pairings, two music stages, crowd-pleasing Mexican wrestlers, activities for kids, and visitors can text vote for Chicago’s “Best Taco.”
A $10 suggested donation benefits the Friends of Lakeview & the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce.
