Food Vendors

The local flavor of the Glenwood Avenue Arts Festival distinguishes our event from other Chicago street festivals. GAAF’s commitment to a neighborhood aesthetic is reflected by our Festival Food Vendors, which are all restaurants and businesses with direct ties to the Rogers Park community.

Participating as a GAAF Food Vendor can be a profitable way to promote your establishment to thousands of hungry Fest attendees!

Rogers Park restaurants and restauranteurs are invited to participate as Festival Food Vendors on August 19-21, joining local favorites including Badou Senegalese, Black Dog Gelato, Blow Wow Jamaican, El Sabor Poblano, JB Alberto’s, Los Portales, and Urban Tables.
