Flavors of Albany Park

Don't miss this year's Flavors of Albany Park!

Calling all foodies! Experience the rich, international culture and cuisine of the northwest side of the Chicago by tasting the delicious "Flavors of Albany Park" at this neighborhood restaurant crawl on Wednesday, June 19, from 6:00-9:00pm. Albany Park is "Chicago's Gateway to the World" which reflects the diverse ethnic cuisines from 50 participating businesses.

This year, the event is bigger and tastier with THREE routes; the choice is yours! Attendees receive a "passport" as their ticket to taste sample-sized portions of culinary delights from local restaurants along Kedzie, Lawrence, Kimball and/or Montrose Avenues.

FREE tickets for volunteers (sign up at bit.ly/flavors19volunteer).

All tickets purchased day-of the event online or at the registration table are an additional $5 each, pending availability. Flavors sells out -- so act fast!

Event takes place rain or shine.

ROUTE OPTIONS: Pick between routes on Lawrence/Kimball, Kedzie, or Montrose. Check in is at Noon-O-Kabab, 4701 N Kedzie.

VEGETARIAN? While the restaurants have full say in the food item(s) they provide, we highly encourage them to provide a veggie option, although not required of them. That said, the Kedzie and Montrose routes are most veggie friendly based on the past years.
