Food Bowl celebrates the chefs, restaurateurs, mixologists, innovators, entrepreneurs, critics, and connoisseurs who put Chicago at the forefront of the nation’s food and drink scene. The festival will showcase the distinct tastes and flavors of Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods.
In sponsorship with Beam Suntory, Food Bowl will feature collaborations with national and international culinary talent including chefs, mixologists, restaurants, and venues across Chicago.
Throughout the three-week festival, Food Bowl will collaborate with chefs and restaurants around Chicago to offer 100+ events, in just as many locations. Expertly curated events include, but are not limited to, specialty classes, test kitchens, panels and talks, pop-up bars, and neighborhood tours.
The festival will conclude with a three-day Night Market held at The Lakefront Green at Theatre on the Lake. The street food market will feature 30+ of Chicago’s essential restaurants. During these three days, over 30,000 guests will discover new restaurants, dine on unique dishes, connect with Chicago’s most talented chefs, and experience Chicago like they never have before. A $5 suggested donation for entry will benefit our charitable partners: Green City Market, Pilot Light and The Trotter Project.
