Together Eli’s Cheesecake and Taste of Chicago celebrated their 37th birthdays with a 1,500 pound cheesecake. The Big Eli’s Cheesecake had delicious layers of Original Plain and Chocolate Chip topped with giant marzipan cherries.



After being fork-lifted off an Eli’s Cheesecake truck, Cirque du Soleil put on a magical performance next to the Big Cake for thousands of Eli’s fans to enjoy while waiting in line.

Following the performance, songwriter Julianna Zobrist, led the Eli’s team in the singing of ‘Happy Birthday’ prior to the ceremonial cutting of the cake.








The fan base this year at the Taste was in full support for Eli’s booth on the Corner of Jackson and Columbus.
