Rolling into Chicago’s Lower West Side the weekend of June 8th-9th Protected content the fifth annual Pilsen Food Truck Social. As its eponymous name suggests, food trucks are the centerpiece of this well attended neighborhood street fest. Food trucks are featured along with local restaurant and retail vendors. There is an optional $5 donation to attend and a percentage of the proceeds from the event benefit local non-profits. In addition to the mobile eats and the feel good charitable factor, other elements help put the “social” into Pilsen Food Truck Social.  Pilsen’s own Thalia Hall programs the live music stage in partnership with Empty Bottle Presents, promising a mix of relevant and cutting edge live music and local performances. This year the event will feature dancers and musicians from the Academy of Mexican Dance and Music to open the fest each day. Culture thrives in Pilsen, and Pilsen Food Truck Social patrons are invited to explore the heart of the community. Bold murals can be discovered in the most unexpected places — on the fronts of homes, along railway overpasses, and wrapped around train platforms. The artful vibe continues within storefront art galleries and studios. Pilsen Food Truck Social attendees are encouraged to spend the day, before, during or after the festival, discovering the diverse collection of galleries, vintage shops, independent coffee houses, art galleries, bodegas, panaderias, and restaurants throughout the neighborhood.
