The 21st Annual Taste of Randolph Festival, taking place Friday June 16th through Sunday June 18th 2017, will return to Chicago’s West Loop Neighborhood. Artists will perform on two stages and a DJ stage to entertain guests while they peruse the block with the biggest and brightest names in Chicago dining, featuring over 18 restaurants exemplary for delectable menus and irresistibly unique flavors.The lineup includes headlining slots from Dawes, Eden, Emancipator Ensemble, Here Come The Mummies, Moon Taxi, and Denver’s own Robert Delong – who will all rock and roll on the Denver Live on the Rocks Stage, returning for its second year. The two wings of a jaw-dropping replica of Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Denver’s world-famous outdoor venue, stands 76 feet long and up to 30 feet tall, and is hand-carved and hand-painted to resemble Red Rocks’ sandstone – making for an exciting experience similar to one of America’s best venues.There will also be performances from Slow Magic, !!!
