West Chicago Food Festival returns on Aug. 28
West Chicago will soon have its first city-sponsored downtown event in more than a year.
The West Chicago Food Festival is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from more than a dozen vendors. There also will be live music and activities, including mini cooking classes for children.
Previously scheduled in October, organizers say they moved the event to an earlier date to maximize the season for outdoor gatherings.
"We can't wait to see everyone downtown again for a community celebration," said Nicolette Stefan, the city's special event coordinator. "Bring your friends and your appetites." For more information, visit the West Chicago Food Festival Facebook page or westchicago.org.
