Pilsen Food Truck Social feat. Sonorama & CumbiaSazo

Pilsen Food Truck Social rolls back into Chicago’s Lower West Side June 11 and 12 for another delicious weekend of mobile eats and live beats!

Where: Pilsen – 18th Street & Allport

Saturay, June 11th, 11am-10pm
Feat. (((SONORAMA)))

Sunday, June 12th, 11am-10pm
Feat. CumbiaSazo

As its eponymous name suggests, food trucks are again the centerpiece of the second year neighborhood street fest. Over 25 Illinois Food Truck Owner Association affiliated trucks will congregate in the heart of the Pilsen on 18th Street at Allport, offering a $20 Sampler Ticket [Pre-purchase via PayPal here: ] that allows consumers to stroll around and try sizable food and drink portions, including ice cold Revolution Brewing beer.

In addition to the mobile eats, other elements help put the “social” into Pilsen Food Truck Social. Pilsen’s historic Thalia Hall is back as programmers of 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, restaurants and non-profits participating as vendors and exhibitors.

In addition to a curated selection of Illinois food trucks paying homage to mobile dining throughout the weekend, sponsored wine, craft cocktails and Revolution beer will also be available – with sample-sized portions included in the Sampler ticket price or regular-sized portions for individual cash purchase. Food Truck chefs will shell out favorites like lobster rolls, jerk chicken, pierogi and even hand-made doggie treats. Wave 1 food trucks include (more TBA in subsequent release):
