WEST TOWN FOOD TRUCK SOCIAL
Friday, October 6th from 4pm-10pm and Saturday, October 7th from 11am-10pm
on Noble & Chicago Avenue (800-900 N. Noble) and in conjunction with West Town Art Walk
The popular Food Truck Social returns to West Town and is being held in conjunction with the 2017 West Town Art Walk!
The popular Food Truck Social brand is marrying up with the West Town Art Walk for the second year to create a one-of-a-kind neighborhood wide food and art festival, October 6th & 7th 2017. Located in the heart of West Town along the bustling Chicago Avenue corridor, West Town Food Truck Social & West Town Art Walk is presented by the West Town Chamber of Commerce – the driving force behind hallmark festivals like West Fest and Do Division Street Fest. The dual event gives guests a taste of some of Chicago’s best mobile eats with a side of Chicago’s most tantalizing original art.
Organizers are encouraging participants to “snack-n-stroll” through West Town.
West Town Food Truck Social will feature over 12 Food Trucks shelling out all of their specialties – from lobster rolls to jerk chicken to empanadas, donuts and pierogi. Maps for the West Town Art Walk will be available at the Food Truck Social Info Tent at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Noble Street and patrons can "snack-n-stroll" to discover great local artists, neighborhood retailers, restaurants, a public art installation walking tour, live art making and more.
Patrons may choose to purchase the $20 Sampler Ticket at the event (in the Sampler Ticket Tent next to Info Booth) which will be comprised of six individual tickets that can be used to purchase a sample size tasting portion from the participating food trucks onsite. Food trucks will offer tasting size samples of their regular menu favorites. The food trucks will also feature their full regular sized food and beverage menu items available for individual cash purchase.
West Town Food Truck Social will feature a DJed playlist courtesy of Permanent Records to provide some cool beats with the great eats; plus Chicago Center for Music Education (ChiME) will provide faculty and students for a live music performance on
