Burrito fanatics: rejoice. Chipotle Mexican Grill's "Cultivate Chicago" food and music festival is returning to Lincoln Park for its second annual showcase.

Running from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Saturday, the free fest celebrates music, food and sustainable food production. Musical guests G. Love & Special Sauce, Allen Stone, LP, J Roddy Walston and the Business, and JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound will provide the soundtrack for a series of cooking demonstrations led by celebrity chefs, brewers and vintners.

Big-name foodies on the lineup include Richard Blais from The Spence, HD-1 and Flip Burger Boutique in Atlanta, Amanda Freitag from "Chopped" and "Iron Chef America," Spiaggia's Sarah Grueneberg and Paul Kahan of Blackbird, avec and The Publican.

Got little ones? Bring them along--interactive and educational games and activities will be provided in the special Kids Area.

Sponsor Chipotle will also roll out a special menu that includes sneak peeks at the menu from ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen, the chain's new Asian concept restaurant in Washington, D.C.
