Food Truck Social Returns with New Location, More Trucks and Expanded Music Line-Up

The 2nd annual Chicago Food Truck Social presented by Time Out Chicago, West Town Chamber of Commerce and Empty Bottle returns this year on Saturday, Aug. 25 and now Sunday, Aug. 26 from noon to 10pm, moving from its previous location to the up-and-coming Chicago Avenue Corridor between Wood and Wolcott (1800-1899 W. Chicago Ave).

Food truck social 2011.jpgThere will be 14 featured food trucks per day, a live music stage presented by the Empty Bottle and over 30 retail and sponsor vendors. After the recent ruling and subsequent buzz, the conversation this time around is sure to be different.

Find complete food truck participants and scheduled music acts on their website and check out our preview of last year's.

PS. Scott Lucas and the Married Men will be playing one of those days; if you haven't heard them and you heart The National, you owe it to yourself.

All proceeds benefit local non-profits: the West Town Chamber of Commerce, Commercial Park Advisory Council, and Share Our Strength, a national non-profit that is attempting to end childhood hunger in America.
