CHICAGO (WLS) --Preparations are getting underway for the 36th annual Taste of Chicago festival in July.
The city is now accepting applications from food vendors for the festival, which runs from July 6 through July 10th.
The city offers three ways to participate in the festival: as a five-day vendor, a one- or two-day pop up vendor or as a food truck. The organizers say those options make the festival more accessible to a wide range of food sellers.
Applications are open through Friday, Feb. 26. Visit the city's official Taste of Chicago website for the applications.
