Pilsen Food Truck Social
June 11, 2016 @ 11:00 am - June 12, 2016 @ 10:00 pm
The Pilsen Food Truck Social rolls back into Chicago’s Lower West Side June 11 and 12 for another delicious weekend of mobile eats and live beats! As its eponymous name suggests, food trucks are again the centerpiece of the second year neighborhood street fest. Over 25 Illinois Food Truck Owner Association affiliated trucks will congregate in the heart of the Pilsen on 18th Street at Allport, offering a $20 Sampler Ticket that allows consumers to stroll around and try sizable food and drink portions, including ice cold Revolution beer.
In addition to the mobile eats, other elements help put the “social” into Pilsen Food Truck Social. Pilsen’s historic Thalia Hall is back as programmers of the live music stage, injecting a mix of fun and cutting edge music. Also, the exclusive partnership withRevolution Brewing, Chicago’s hometown craft brewery, gives fest-goers a wide variety of fresh Revolution beer. To round it out, the neighborhood of Pilsen itself will be showcased, with local artisans, retailers, Pilsen restaurants and non-profits participating as vendors and exhibitors. The event is family friendly with an arts and craft activity table and balloon dart game with prizes for the kids. Well behaved dogs on leashes are also welcomed with dog treats for purchase at the dog food truck Fido To Go.
