Take your foodie experience to the next level by attending Chicago Gourmet. This food event attracts foodies from all over the nation to its diverse culinary scene. Each year the Grand Tasting event takes place in Millennium Park. Enjoy dinners with local chefs, dishes from around the globe, and sweets that’ll make you cry! 

The Chicago Gourmet consists of a couple of events, including the Grand Tasting, Hamburger Hop, Go Gourmet Dinner Series, and the Grand Cru. Usually, the food event is set up with tents on the grassy field near the stadium. Many of Chicago’s top restaurants will be there serving wine, beer, food, and more. You may even get your cooking book signed by your favorite chef author!

The Chicago Gourmet food festival will begin September 23 – 25, 2022.

Hamburger Hop

Many Chicagoans are burger fans, so it’s no surprise that this food event will dedicate a portion of the schedule to it. The list of chefs will compete for the best burgers for dine-in, delivery, and carry-out. For the 2022 Chicago Gourmet Food Festival this year, contestants will be from restaurants such as Bar Sotano, BLVD Steakhouse, Eris Brewery, Funkenhausen, and more. Pair your tasty burger with local beer and wine from nearby restaurants! 

Go Gourmet Dinner Series

The Go Gourmet Dinner Series at the Chicago food festival is an intimate experience. With inspiring chefs from many restaurants onboard, this evening features unique menus. It’s pretty impressive how restaurants transform their space for a theme to match the gourmet style. In September, you’ll be able to enjoy the Chicago weather while having fine wine.
