The Spice House frequently hosts seminars on spices, cooking and other related topics. We hold these events in our stores, as well as other special locations.
Current & Upcoming Events
For millennia, the quest for elusive spices has led man to exploration, financial success and even to war.
Patty and Tom have spent their lives as spice merchants in pursuit of the highest quality spices from locations all over the globe. They will share interesting historical facts, anecdotes and entertaining tales of adventures in seasoning, plus you'll take home some spicy goodies!

Iconic. Trailblazing. Inspirational. And bursting with creativity. The early summer street extravaganza that is the Wells Street Art Festival returns for its 41st year to the eponymous strip of Wells Street between North Avenue and Division in Chicago's historic Old Town neighborhood.
An eclectic mix of juried art, tasty cuisine of neighborhood restaurants, a breezy music stage lineup, and activities for kids and families are just a few of many highlights of this post-Memorial Day celebration of art.
The Spice House is located right in the heart of the action, so stop by for spices or just a quiet break in our shady back garden. For more information, including a list of participating artist and a schedule of performances, please visit the event's website.
