After a successful inaugural event, West Chicago is proud to welcome the Food Festival back to Downtown West Chicago for its second year! Food trucks, food vendors, and vendors that relate to the food festival theme are encouraged to apply. There is no vendor registration fee for this year’s event.
Food Vendors Confirmed (as of March 26, 2019):
Entry is free to the public. Food will be available for purchase from a variety of vendors. Vendors are encouraged to offer at least one “tasting portion” for $3 or less in order for guests to sample a wide variety of foods at affordable rates. Please note that alcohol is not permitted at this event.
Attendees will enjoy live entertainment, children’s activities, and featured performances by Guittara Azul, Five Guys Named Moe, and Wild Daisy. Healthy West Chicago will be offering free live cooking demonstrations. Additional programming components will be added in the coming months, stay tuned!
Vendors will have the opportunity to compete in the Cooking Competition. Prizes will be awarded in at least three categories. Winners will be selected by judges using a “blind tasting” review process.
