Food, food, and more food—that's what you'll find at the Taste of Chicago. Taking place in Chicago's Grant Park from June 29 to July 8, the festival offers sample dishes from more than 70 area restaurants and cooking demonstrations by local chefs. The other main draw? Daily live music, including nationally known acts such as Kenny Rogers, John Mayer, and The Black Crowes. Admission is free; purchase tickets (11 for $7) to sample the festival's wares.
