City Announces Taste of Chicago Food Trucks

Ahead of the 33rd annual Taste of Chicago, running July 10 to July 14 in Grant Park, the city announced the 14 food trucks participating in the food fest.

“Taste of Chicago was created to showcase the city’s culinary scene and food trucks are now a vibrant part of that scene,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said. “It’s only natural that the trucks join in on the premier food event of summer. We are excited that Taste continues to evolve.”

Before and during evening concerts at the Petrillo Music Shell, attendees can purchase food from trucks parked just east of the lawn at the pavilion. The mayor's office said food trucks will start serving an hour before each concert and serve for the duration of the show.

Trucks will serve three or four regular-size portions and two "taste" portions and will accept the same food and beverage tickets as other Taste booths.

Here's a list of food trucks and corresponding concerts:
