Flavors of Albany Park restaurant crawl


Update: 2020 Flavors of Albany Park Restaurant Crawl

North River Commission and the Albany Park Chamber of Commerce are committed to supporting the businesses, organizations, schools, and residents in the communities we serve. The health and safety of the community are also of paramount importance to our organization. For now, we are focused on providing whatever support we can to our community to navigate the immediate crisis, access emergency resources, and operate businesses and organizations in a safe and responsible way.

Hosting events has always been a way that North River Commission and the Albany Park Chamber have brought the community together, and we look forward to a time when we can resume those activities. We are monitoring the latest information from public health officials for guidance on when and how we might be able to bring together people safely.

In lieu of hosting events in the community, NRC and the Chamber are considering how we can continue to support local businesses, organizations, artists, school groups, and everyday residents while keeping people safe. Be sure to regularly visit our website, social media, and newsletters for updates and ways to support your community.


Flavors of Albany Park restaurant crawl will be postponed at a more appropriate time. We are looking for ways to continue to support local businesses and restaurants during the pandemic, so the next Flavors may look a bit different than you are used to but the flavor will still be the same: delicious local offerings from our incredible restaurants, cafes, and bars.


Be sure to visit bit.ly/NRCdining for a list of local businesses currently open or available for online orders, curbside pickup, and delivery. Continue to #shopsmall. Our businesses need your support more than ever, so let's do our part to help them survive and thrive as they adapt during Shelter in Place.

What's a restaurant crawl?

Venues offer a signature sample of their food, a sweet treat, or a unique drink to all attendees. You walk from restaurant to restaurant as fast or slow as you like. You get a "Passport" for the route that you select that has the venues along your route. As you walk along, you will also enjoy a variety of entertainment and live music.


$30 adults, $15 kids (12 and under), $20 students (with valid ID, includes university), $20 seniors (60+). All tickets purchased day-of the event online or at the registration table are an additional $5 each, pending availability. Flavors sells out, so act fast!



While the restaurants decide what food item(s) to offer, we highly encourage them to provide a veggie option, although not required. The Kedzie and Montrose routes are the most veggie friendly, based on the past years.

We love our small businesses
