More Information:

The Pilsen Food Truck Social rolls back into Chicago’s Lower West Side for the fourth year of delicious mobile eats and cool live beats!  As its eponymous name suggests, food trucks are the centerpiece of the event.  Over 25 Illinois Food Truck & Trailer Owner Association affiliated trucks will congregate in the heart of Pilsen on 18th Street between Racine and Throop (1200 W. -1300 W. 18th St. Chicago IL 60608).


The $20 Sampler Ticket will allow fest-goers to stroll around and try SIX (6) sample-sized portions from the food trucks and restaurants onsite. All regular sized food and beverages will also be available for individual cash purchase. 


In addition to the mobile eats, other elements help put the “social” into Pilsen Food Truck Social.  The live music stage just outside historic live music venue
Thalia Hall, programmed by Thalia Hall and Empty Bottle Presents will feature lively local and regional acts. Pilsen's own 606 Records will be spinning records and keeping cool beats going throughout the weekend  To round it out, the neighborhood of Pilsen itself will be showcased, with local artisans, retailers, and Pilsen restaurants participating as vendors and exhibitors.


Culture thrives in Pilsen and the rest of Chicago is invited to explore the heart of the community during Pilsen Food Truck Social.  Attendees can spend the day – before, during or after the fest – discovering the abundant public art murals and diverse collection of offbeat vintage shops, independent coffee houses, quaint cafes, bodegas, panaderias and wonderful restaurants  throughout the historic neighborhood.  Thalia Hall will also feature live music and ticketed shows inside their own venue during the weekend.
