It wouldn't be summer in Chicago without Taste of Chicago, the annual city-sanctioned food festival that takes over Grant Park July 10–14. Earlier today, organizers announced the lengthy vendor lineup, with a total of 82 local restaurants, chefs and food trucks participating. The list offers a whopping 37 first-timers, including A Place by Damao, Luella's Gospel Bird and Yvolina's Tamales.

Like always, Taste of Chicago is free to attend, with food tickets available for purchase (14 tickets go for $10). Each vendor offers a curated selection from its regular menu as well as small "Taste of" portions that go for $3 each. Another perk of the massive food festival is the accompanying music lineup, which will be announced early next month and has included acts like Weezer and Passion Pit in years past.

Of-age attendees can also enjoy the Malört-spiked Chicago Mule cocktail at the CH Vodka Cocktail Lounge by Buckingham Fountain. Goose Island and Stella Rosa will pour beer and wine, respectively. Take a look at the 37 new vendors joining the Taste of Chicago lineup below, and check out the full lineup here.
