Celebrating its 18th summer and featured on Food Network’s “Eating America, with Anthony Anderson,” Ribfest Chicago ranked as one of the 10 best fests by USA Today and was voted three years running as the Best Food Festival in the Chicago Reader. In 2016 we will be serving up more smokin’ music and barbecue as we cook up Chicago’s favorite food and music festival.

From humble beginnings in a local parking lot, Ribfest has grown from a two-day, three-block party to three-night, five-block event, hosting more than thirty Chicagoland rib and non-rib vendors. The quality of entertainment has made Ribfest an internationally-recognized music festival that hosts premier touring bands. But despite its impressive growth and success, the fest has maintained its neighborhood feel.

It’s no wonder that Ribfest Chicago remains one of the city’s best summer attractions. Proceeds from Ribfest Chicago benefit the Northcenter Chamber of Commerce, local schools, youth sports and social services.
