Pilsen is only a few minutes away from the center of Chicago by bus or train. This working-class neighborhood is thick with riches in art and historic architecture, and is occupied by a community that’s fiercely proud of where they live. The Tacos y Tamales Festival aims to give back to the community in which it is hosted; as a portion of the proceeds will benefit local community groups as well as preservation projects inhabiting Pilsen’s everyday lifestyle.
