      The tradition of the "Taste of Chicago" was initiated in 1980 as a one-day festival on the U.S. Independence Day, July 4th, and sponsored by the city authorities. More than 250 thousand people arrived for the first holiday for gourmets. Since then the festival has been expanding geographically with every year.

      But the festival's program is not limited to tasting alone. In addition to it, the festival holds many cultural events. Ingesting and burning the consumed calories can be done right there participating in various competitions and dancing to live music of different styles. Many celebrities share there art on the main stage of the park during the festival. Among the performers of past years are Stevie Wonder, Sheryl Crow, LL Cool J, Elvis Costello and many others.

      Children and their parents have fun at the festival too. Organizers construct an entire Family Village with massive entertainments: games, contests, quizzes, dances and songs, carousel rides and funny clowns. Since the "Taste of Chicago" is closely interwoven with a very important for all Americans date – 4th of July, a gala concert and a awesome fireworks display is arranged on the eve of Independence Day – July 3 night.
