Lollapalooza is more than just a music festival. Taking place each year in historic Grant Park, Lolla is a three-day cultural experience that takes place on 115 acres between Downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan.

Chicago has the best food in the world. And Lollapalooza is no different. Far from turkey legs and funnel cakes, and curated by Chef Graham Elliot, Chow Town is a showcase of the best that the Windy City has to offer. With two locations on Columbus Drive in the heart of Grant Park, and everything from drinks, desserts and more, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
Stay tuned for the 2014 Chow Town announcement coming Summer 2014.
The Farmers Market at Lolla pulls in the best locally-sourced festival fare to suite more conscious cravings.
Located on the green grass across from Chow Town, it’s easy to grab your food and lounge in the lush grass of Grant Park.
