on Noble & Chicago Avenue (800-900 N. Noble) in conjunction with West Town Art Walk
The West Town Art Walk & Food Truck Social occurs RAIN OR SHINE!
The popular Food Truck Social returns to West Town and is being held in conjunction with the 2018 West Town Art Walk!
The Food Truck Social brand is marrying up with the West Town Art Walk for the third year to create a one-of-a-kind neighborhood wide food and art festival, October 5th & 6th 2018. 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 Food Trucks shelling out all of their specialties – from lobster rolls to empanadas, chicken wings to tacos. Ice cold beer from sponsor Tecate and sponsors Prairie Organic Vodka and Douglas & Todd Bourbon will be onsite offering complimentary cocktail samples (must be 21+), the full size Prairie Vodka and Douglas & Todd cocktails will also be available at the bar.
Maps for the West Town Art Walk will be available at the Food Truck Social Information Tent at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Noble Street during the event and patrons can "snack-n-stroll" to discover great local artists, neighborhood retailers, restaurants, public art installation and mural walking tours, live art making and more. Visit 15 Art Walk locations and participate in a raffle with great prizes from local West Town businesses. Please visit the West Town Art Walk website for more information on the Art Walk participants, the raffle, the public art tours, events and after parties.
FREE Rickshaws will be traveling on Chicago Avenue all weekend to help patrons get from one Art Walk hot spot to the next and to the Food Truck Social. All one needs to catch a free rickshaw ride is an orange "I heart West Town" button (available at participating Art Walk Locations, headquarters at the West Town Chamber of Commerce 1819 W. Chicago, and at the Food Truck Social Information Booth on the corner of Chicago Avenue and Noble).
The Food Truck Social will feature DJ Elliot Sound spinning vinyl classics, deep cuts, old wave, new wave, you name it... plus don't miss the student musical performance by ChiME Chicago Center for Music Education from 3pm-5pm on Saturday. The Food Truck Social event is kid and dog friendly, well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome and there will be a giant jenga for the kids;
plus plenty of picnic tables with umbrellas for comfortable seating to take a break from all of the Art Walking.
Festival guests may choose to purchase the $20 Sampler Ticket at the event (in the Sampler Ticket / Information 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 menu favorites. The food trucks will also feature their full regular sized food and beverage menu items available for individual cash purchase.
The event is FREE!
