2018 Windy City RibFest

2018 Windy City RibFest

Top local and national ribbers will again mix saucy slab offerings that are complemented with an eclectic music lineup at this annual festival. This tasty happening takes place just days before the Fourth of July. It has grown in popularity (and crowds) each year and is now a must-visit Chicago summer fest! RibFest also features arts, crafts and a daytime kids’ activity area.

The neighborhood includes nationally-acclaimed music venues including The Green Mill, Aragon Ballroom and Riviera nightclub. This location helps to attract huge crowds.

The eclectic mix of past music stage performers include Lucky Boys Confusion, Cracker, Rusted Root, Cowboy Mouth, Here Come the Mummies and Liquid Soul.
