    The land of festivals has acquired yet another one to its collection.

    Chicago will feature its First Annual Italian Beef Festival this May—a two-session extravaganza.

    According to the Revolution Brewing site, the festival will include iconic local brands such as Al’s Beef, Buona and Mr. Beef along with Revolution beer.

    The two-session event scheduled on National Italian Beef Day, May 26, will take place at Revolution Brewing Tap Room at 3340 N. Kedzie Ave.

    “The day will include Chicago's best Italian beef, Revolution brews, a special guest appearance by Chicago's Best Elliott Bambrough, a beef eating contest, and more,” states the site.

    Tickets include three four-inch Italian beef sandwiches and three seven-ounce Revolution beers.

    The first session will be from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m. and the second will be from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. Each ticket is $30, though $5 of every ticket sold will support the Anothony Rizzo Family Foundation.
