The Pilsen Food Truck Social rolls back into Chicago’s Lower West Side June 10th and 11th, 2017 for another delicious weekend of mobile eats and live beats! As its eponymous name suggests, food trucks are again the centerpiece of the event. Over 20 Illinois Food Truck Owner Association affiliated trucks will congregate in the heart of Pilsen on 18th Street at Allport.
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, and/or sample beer varieties by Revolution Brewing (if 21+ with picture ID). All regular sized food and beverages will also be available for individual cash purchase. Click the Buy Now button above to pre-purchase the Sampler Ticket (includes processing fee). Pre-purchased Sampler Tickets will be available for pick up at the Sampler Ticket tent (on 18th & Allport) either Saturday or Sunday June 10th or 11th between 11am and 9pm (please bring picture ID). Sampler Tickets will also be available for sale onsite, however quantities are limited and they may sell out.
In addition to the mobile eats, other elements help put the “social” into Pilsen Food Truck Social. Pilsen’s historic Thalia Hall programs the live music stage, injecting a mix of fun and cutting edge music. Also, the exclusive partnership with Revolution 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.
2017 Live Music:
Pilsen’s Thalia Hall is programming an impressive lineup of eclectic live music TBA to set the tone throughout the weekend.
Culture thrives in Pilsen and the rest of Chicago is invited to explore the heart of the community during Pilsen Food Truck Social. It’s here, in Pilsen, where bold murals have blossomed in the most unexpected places — on the fronts of homes, along railway overpasses, and wrapped around train platforms. The artful vibe continues within storefront galleries and studios. It's a neighborhood that pulses with a youthful spirit and is ever evolving. Pilsen Food Truck Social attendees can spend the day – before, during or after the fest – discovering the diverse collection of offbeat vintage shops, art galleries, independent coffee houses and quaint cafes alongside bodegas, panaderias and ethnic restaurants dotted throughout the neighborhood. Thalia Hall will also feature live music and ticketed shows inside their historic venue during the weekend.
A percentage of proceeds will benefit the Illinois Food Truck Owners Association,Pilsen’s St. Procopius Catholic Church soup kitchen and food bank,and the Chicago Dia de los Ninos Scholarships.
