Chicago Food Truck Festival Returns in July After Two-Year Hiatus

Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (BACP) Commissioner Rosa Escareno said Tuesday that the popular Chicago Food Truck Festival at Daley Plaza would return this summer following a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. The festival will feature a rotating selection of food trucks from around the city at Daley Plaza every Friday from July 30 through Oct. 15.

“As people return to work and businesses reopening, Food Truck Fest is a great way to celebrate how far we have come in the fight against COVID-19 while supporting small businesses at the same time,” said Escareno. “Chicago is the culinary capital of the country, and we are thrilled to bring our amazing food trucks back to the Loop every Friday later this summer.”

This year marks the sixth year that BACP has sponsored and organized the Chicago Food Truck Festival. Six trucks will be featured each Friday.
