The city Monday was expected to announce several cultural events for the summer, including Taste of Chicago To-Go, as part of its “Open Chicago” initiative aimed at resuming city entertainment offerings now that the state has reopened from COVID-19 restrictions.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office was organizing the events — which will include music, films, food and cultural heritage celebrations — with the city’s Cultural Affairs and Special Events Department. The mayor planned to make an announcement later Monday with more information, including artist lineups, according to a news release.ADVERTISING
