Chipotle’s Cultivate Chicago Festival


Just a reminder, the third annual Cultivate Chicago Festival will be taking place in Lincoln Park Saturday, September 7 from 11AM to 7PM. With a combination of food, music and sustainability, it’s Chipotle’s way of raising awareness of responsibly raised food and other food issues. Last year’s festival was a huge success with over 25,000 people attending. I expect there to be even more people this year, so I would plan on getting out there early, and as always it’s free to the public. There are a lot of people coming together to make this festival the best one yet, local celebrity chefs will be having live demos, there will be great music and food, and Chipotle is working with local brewery 5 Rabbit Brewery to produce a one-of-a-kind “Cultivate Farmhouse Ale.” Check out the full line up of musical guests, chefs and artisans below:
