Taste of Randolph assembles some of the windy city’s best in food, music, and festival fun for one rockin’ weekend to benefit the West Loop Community Organization. Attracting crowds in excess of 100,000 and always a favorite amongst Chicagoans, Taste of Randolph is located in one of the city’s most famous restaurant rows—the Randolph Street Corridor.
Top-rated West Loop neighborhood restaurants come together with talented artisans and eclectic vendors for this three-day, cross-cultural celebration. Artisan, merchant, and restaurant booths are intermixed along two the aligning rows that adorn six blocks of Randolph Street.
This food-centric festival brings together some of the top restaurants in the West Loop, such as BellyQ, Publican Quality Meats, De Cero Taqueria, Pork Chop, Grange Hall Burger Bar, among others. The festival also offers delicious beverages such as beer, sangria and Constellation Wines. As festival-goers meander along the six-block stretch, they can also explore the various merchants selling goods. Among the many items offered by artisans are handcrafted jewelry pieces, clothing, artwork and a multitude of other fun accessories.
Taste of Randolph is sure to impress music fans as well as foodies. Chicago’s favorite independent promoters, Silver Wrapper, have curated three unique stages that will feature incredible talent throughout the weekend. And Yes!, we are bringing the DJ dance stage back, hosted by The Mid. You’re sure to be dancing in the streets. And the fun doesn’t stop there, as Official After Parties will take place at nearby venues.
This festival, produced and managed by Star Events, benefits the West Loop Community Organization (WLCO), where residents, visitors, and businesses have an active voice in decisions affecting the neighborhood parks, development, schools, traffic, safety, and more. The organization is constantly working to ensure positive growth for the neighborhood, while offering social events and promoting beneficial developments to improve the quality of life in the West Loop. The admission is a $10 suggested donation to WLCO.
