Chow Town Showdown

If Lollapalooza’s Chow Town makes you cheer, then you’ll want to up your Instagram game for the chance to win a pair of All-In Passes to Chicago Food + Wine Festival! We’ve partnered with our friends at Lolla to celebrate the delicious foods you can find at Chow Town that make your favorite tunes even tastier.


This contest begins Thursday, July 30, 2015 at 10am CST and ends Monday, August 3, 2015 at 5pm CST.


Snap a pic of food at Lolla’s Chow Town (or make a post featuring one of the Chow Town vendors on their home turf) on Instagram and hashtag it with #Lolla and #CFWFest. If we love your Insta, you’re in for a real treat; these All-In Passes get you all day access on Saturday and Sunday to The Grand Tasting, as well as entry into Saturday night’s Toast and Taste and Last Call events. You’ll get to indulge in over 90 food, wine, and beverage exhibitors, and experience all that the Chef Showcase has to offer.

The Instagrams will be judged by a panel that will look at photo composition / aesthetic, use of both hashtags, a descriptive caption, and social reach. Don’t be overwhelmed—we want to see your creativity and personal spin on the foods you love the most!

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to be the first to know news, updates and announcements about the 2015 Chicago Food + Wine Festival!
