Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, 2021 Bite Nite has been canceled.
Taking into account that times continue to be uncertain as we struggle to find a new normal during Covid-times, and our priority of ensuring the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, vendors, and community, it is with great sadness we have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person 2021 Bite Nite event.
We are confident that it will be rescheduled for our usual month of January in 2022!
Paul McKenna, Bite Nite Co-Chair + Owner of Starship Restaurant & Catering says:
“As a long time business owner, I have realized the great potential the chambers of Forest Park and Oak Park-River Forest offer to small businesses by providing great opportunities like Bite Nite to work together to drive patrons to our businesses and communities.”
Lincoln Property Company, owner of Eleven33 + Oak Park Place Apartments, and Diamond sponsor says:
"We are excited to sponsor Bite Nite for the second year in a row. This event is so loved by not only us, but the entire Oak Park community. The food and atmosphere of the event are a great way to start the new year. We’re honored to be a part of such a close-knit community and have such a strong relationship with the Chamber."
Christine Barnard, Bite Nite Co-Chair + Chief Advisor of What Now Advisors says:
“Bite Nite has become a mid-winter celebratory tradition for Oak Park and its surrounding communities. In addition to restaurants, the event includes a number of industry vendors and sponsors.”
