Taste of Glen Ellyn organizers add extra day of events

Glen Ellyn diners and fairgoers will get an extra day to enjoy the annual Taste of Glen Ellyn this year.

The village’s chamber of commerce is adding a day to the event that most years draws thousands to Glen Ellyn’s downtown for food, carnival rides and shopping.

This year, the event will run Thursday through Sunday, May 17-20, said the chamber’s co-director, Georgia Koch.

In addition to at least 16 food vendors, including some local restaurants like Tap House Grill and Chicago Prime Meat Market, visitors can expect live music from popular regional bands like 7th Heaven and Hi Infidelity, Koch said.

A craft fair is scheduled for noon to 8 p.m. Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday, according to the chamber’s website.

Events kick off at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Main Street parking lot, next to Giesche Shoes at 400 N. Main St.
