Savor a variety of urban cuisine from food trucks offering gourmet grilled cheese, tacos, bbq, burgers, sweets, and more.

A wide range of Chicagoland bands will fuel the fest vibe, including musical headliner 7th heaven, a high energy, chart-topping band well-known for its originals and covers. 7th heaven has played at venues across the Midwest and is recognized as one of the biggest independent bands in the world!
