A budget travel community your mom probably wouldn't find useful.

Food, games, music, and cornhole

4.0 Stars

Taste of Lincoln Avenue is like a smaller-scale Taste of Chicago with a younger crowd and cooler things to do. This street festival, which takes place during the last weekend of July, doesn't focus solely on food. Local businesses sell their wares (edible or otherwise), there are midway games so you can try your luck, five stages that host over 40 musical acts, and there's even a bags tournament to compete in. Since Lincoln Park is a younger 'hood, you don't have to deal with screaming kids or old fogeys. The only catch is that, like any Chicago festival, the crowds are insane, so you might have to start throwin' elbows to cross the street.
