Lakeview Taco Fest
August 26 @ 11:00 am - August 27 @ 10:00 pm
With its eclectic mix of stores, boutiques and restaurants, the Southport Corridor is arguably one of the hottest commercial strips in Chicago.
This August it gets even more sizzling when the glorious taco is again in the spotlight as the tortilla-wrapped fave is celebrated at this annual food and music happening. Back for its tenth flavor-filled year in 2023, 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 fall fest is a wildly popular fixture to the Windy City’s food scene. More than 10 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.
