The Taste of Chicago 2012 has officially begun. The event, which is considered the biggest event of the year in the Windy City, started today, July 11, and will run through July 15.
Held each year in Chicago's Grant Park (between Monroe Avenue and Balbo Drive), the Taste includes hundreds of food vendors that offer sample sizes of some of their most popular dishes like deep dish pizza, turkey legs and more. The Taste also has entertainment, including Chicago's own Jennifer Hudson who will be performing this year. For more performers, check out our Taste of Chicago 2012 Performers Guide.
The Taste runs July 11 - 15 from 11 a.m. - 8:30 p.m. For more information, including tickets, read our Taste of Chicago 2012 Guide.
