Taste of Greektown
While summer may be winding down, Greektown Chicago plans to celebrate the season with our annual Taste of Greektown festival from Friday, August 24 through Sunday, August 26. Whether you’re a regular attendee or a newcomer, don’t miss the chance to experience Greek culture first-hand with food, live music, and on-site activities.
A mix of local Greektown businesses and food vendors will provide refreshments and authentic Greek cuisine, like feta, tzatziki and roasted chicken, so Windy City foodies can experience traditional Mediterranean dishes. Lively Greek bands, dance troupes, local musicians and The Jesse White Tumblers will perform throughout the weekend, and attendees can also participate in fun activities, like a gyro eating contest, to take their Greek food tasting to the next level. The festival will be held between 400 S. Halsted St. and 100 S. Halsted Street on Friday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Saturday & Sunday from noon to 11 p.m. Further details will be announced on social media closer to the festival—we hope to see you there!
