TASTE OF WVON 2017

The fastest growing festival on Chicago's southside!

The Taste of WVON is a fun-filled day of food, live entertainment, shopping and community building designed for the entire family. This day-long celebration takes place in one of Chicago’s premier neighborhoods, the Chatham-Avalon community.

This year marks the seventh annual Taste of WVON and we are getting bigger and better every year! Brought to you by WVON and dozens of generous sponsors, The Taste of WVON features a Children's Pavilion with a petting zoo, face painting, and pony rides, food and merchant booths and a live sound stage.

WVON is Chicago’s only African-American talk radio station. Our core listener is 35 and over, and professional. They are loyal, conscientious consumers who are fully vested and engaged in the social and cultural experience of the African-American community. Our listeners are passionate supporters of WVON and actively supporting those advertising partners who support their favorite radio station.
