It’s a Fun Way to Support Your Local Community.


When a community thrives, its property owners prosper. West Loop is an excellent example of this phenomenon. It doesn’t take much to recognize that everyone in the area is invested in keeping this neighborhood vibrant and safe… and continually improving.

One of the most important components of that overall effort is the West Loop Community Organization. They are a recognized delegate agency for the City of Chicago, which means they represent the interests of West Loop residents and businesses in a variety of situations. It’s a two-way street, though. The organization depends on the reciprocal support from those who benefit from its initiatives. Taste of Randolph is one of several events that will benefit the organization.

Upon entry, you will be ask to give a small voluntary donation of $10, and we strongly encourage you to take advantage of that opportunity to support your neighborhood and the thriving restaurants and shops that call it home.

Tickets for Taste of Randolph 2017 can be purchased online, and you can choose to pay for all 3 days, or you can choose just one. The event runs from Friday, June 16, 2017 through Sunday, June 18, 2017. Grab some friends and get your passes today.
