Localicious – Friday, March 25, 2016 – Details to be announced

What a Celebration we enjoyed at Localicious 2015!

Friday, March 20, 2015  7:00pm – 9:30pm at UIC Forum

At the UIC Forum on Friday night March 20, 2015, award-winning restaurants and Chicago chefs prepared savory dishes for a huge crowd of Good Food supporters. Pairing with local farmers who use sustainable growing methods, these artisans demonstrated how “farm to table” results in extraordinary creations that excite the senses and delight the palate.  The party was complete with unique beverages created by Chicago-area and regional distilleries and breweries, that provided the perfect complement to these amazing meal offerings. And back by popular demand was the band, Sunnyside Up, that played terrific bluegrass and swing!

Mark your calendar now and plan to join us March 25, 2016 as we reinvent Localicious and offer you many new ways to mingle with other food lovers, experience Chicago’s Good Food movement and be a part of the most talked-about Good Food night of the year!

Anthony Todd for the Chicago Sun-Times said: My favorite of the upcoming Spring food events is Localicious, the party that is the high point of the Good Food Festival. You should buy tickets for the entire festival, but if you only have time for one thing, make it this party on Friday, March 20, 2015. Celebrating America’s longest running sustainable, local food trade show, Localicious includes food, drinks, live music and plenty of fun. All that for just $80 – and you’ll be supporting the Good Food Festival. (Diner’s Notebook 2/26/2015)
