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 with nearly 100 chefs/restaurants creating culinary magic. In addition to food, locally made beer, wine, hand-crafted cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.

Tickets are available NOW on and at the Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays (at the Information Booth). Tickets will not be available at the BBQ!

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.  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.
