CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Let’s Talk Womxn Chicago present the closing celebration of the Taste of Chicago To-Go weekend with “Let’s Talk Women Picnic in White” in Millennium Park on July 11, 2021, from noon to 3 pm. This collaboration of women entrepreneurs, forty strong in Chicago, exemplifies the spirit of resilience and womanpower while celebrating Chicago’s diverse culinary offerings.
Join thousands of guests in breezy summer whites for this celebration, which, apart from gourmet picnic boxes and cocktails, includes entertainment by women performers, a power-women soundtrack, interviews with Let's Talk Womxn restaurateurs, and other speakers. This event is open to the public. Guests are encouraged to dress in white. Historically, women have worn white to show female solidarity, but white also symbolizes summer, optimism, and coming together to move forward. Women may host this event, but all are invited to this festivity to celebrate and dine together as a city.
