The History

With Taste Of Lincoln Avenue!

Visitors Annually!

The Taste of Lincoln Avenue is Wrightwood’s annual fundraiser. The Taste began in 1984, as a way to help fund the Wrightwood Neighbors Association, and to provide financial support for our local schools and organizations through grants. It began with crowds of 10,000 attendees, and has now grown to more than 50,000 visitors for the two-day event.

The 2016 Taste Of Lincoln Avenue Chicago will be held from noon to 10 PM Saturday August 6th and Sunday August 7th. Located on Lincoln Avenue between Fullerton and Wrightwood, the event includes food and craft vendors, five entertainment stages, and a great Kids’ Carnival Area.
