The Chicago Park District will be taking over control of the Taste of Chicago this summer and four other popular summer fests — the Country Music Festival, the Viva! Chicago Latin Music Festival, the Gospel Music Festival and Celtic Fest Chicago — will be merged into the Taste.
Taste of Chicago can reverse huge losses without charging an admission fee — and even turn a profit — by focusing exclusively on food, Mayor Daley said Tuesday.
Mayor Richard M. Daley has said admission to the Taste of Chicago will remain free, but new information shows that may not necessarily end up being the case.
Mayor Daley made it clear on Thursday that he does not want to see an admission fee for the Taste of Chicago.
If there is a Taste of Chicago next summer, it may leave some people with a sour taste when they find out how much it’ll cost to attend.
Big-time cuts could be coming to Taste of Chicago and six other lakefront music festivals.
