food festivalsDo not forget to deliver your appetite if you visit Chicago this summer. The South Road Headhouse District closes South Avenue to automotive traffic from Headhouse Sq. to 8th Avenue for the annual South Street Headhouse District Spring Competition Vendors, food vehicles and South Street eateries present scrumptious food and drinks, as does Bauhaus Schmitz , the South Street beer corridor that hosts its annual Maifest on the same day.

As client confidence in British produce plummeted, and worsened with the outbreak of Foot and Mouth in 2001, the festival labored to showcase great native meals, and the passion of the individuals who produce it. Almost 20 years on, and the competition remains true to its roots, highlighting Britain’s brilliant producers and encouraging the general public to assist sustainable, local meals and farming.
