One of the best summer events in Chicago, this grand picnic is held every July in picturesque Lincoln Park, with the fabulous Chicago skyline as a backdrop. This beautiful venue is ideal to showcase some of Chicago’s finest chefs, the “who’s who” of Chicago’s culinary scene. All dishes served at the BBQ feature items offered from the bounty of the market, and in 2010, we will have 80 chefs (up from 65 last year) creating culinary magic. In addition to food, locally made beer, wine, hand-crafted cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages will be available. Tickets are available on brownpapertickets.com starting on May 12th, at any Illinois Spice House locations, and at the actual market on Wednesdays and Saturdays (at the information table). Tickets will not be available at the BBQ and in past years we have sold out a month in advance, so get your tickets early! Don’t miss out on one of Chicago’s most unique – and tastiest – events of the year. It doesn’t get better than great food, drink, music, and the beauty of Lincoln park on a summer evening in Chicago.
As the Market grows and we're reaching a record number of children, families and adults, we also need to be able to support and increase our programs and educational initiatives (you can read about those programs here: http://chicagogreencitymarket.org/programs/). Please know that all profits from ticket sales go to our programming. Together we can make a difference in the local, Chicago food system by providing information and education on how to eat better and live a healthier lifestyle.
