When you’re in the Chicagoland area, it’s always a good idea to visit Shoreline Sightseeing and experience a Chicago architectural boat tour. In addition to this fun-filled activity, you can also check out one of the fun fests that are occurring, such as Chili Fest.
What is Chili Fest?
Taking place on October 22nd and 23rd, Chili Fest is a showcase of the city’s finest chili vendors. You can purchase a sampling and drink package that will allow you to enjoy the food and festivities for the entire weekend. So get your fill of some gourmet food and stay around for the entertainment.
In addition to enjoying chili from some of the best vendors in the area, you can also have plenty of fun at Chili Fest. During this event, you can experience the River North Block Party, college and pro football games, live DJ entertainment, tailgate games, and more.
What You Need to Know
This event isn’t your grandma’s chili. Instead, you will be amazed at artisan-inspired dishes that you have never before experienced. From unique ingredients to blends you never though were possible, there is definitely something new to enjoy when you visit Chili Fest.
You also can buy tickets in advance or buy them when you get there, so you can plan it ahead of time or decide at the last minute to attend. This fest is also open for the kiddos, so be sure to bring the entire family along.
Aside from enjoying warm chili and taking in all the fun and excitement of the entertainment, Chili Fest is also dedicated to helping out those in need. During this year’s event, Chili Fest will be hosting a coat drive to support the Elam Davies Social Service Center and Chicago Lights Tutoring Program. During the event, please bring your gently used jackets, hats, gloves and thermals for men, women and children.
