One of Chicago’s most iconic events continues to get the attention it deserves!  Returning for its 23rd year in Northcenter, Ribfest Chicago is clearly all about one thing – ribs!  But what goes better with ribs then live eclectic music on two stages, cold beer, a kids area and so much more!

Experience top BBQ vendors who offer racks of their signature ribs and sides, while competing for two Best of Ribfest Chicago titles: the People’s choice award chosen by the crowd; and the top award chosen by a panel of celebrity judges.

Although ribs play the starring role, Ribfest Chicago offers so much more. A wide variety of local, non-rib restaurants also offer their signature dishes. There is a family area with plenty of activities and games for the kids and its own stage.
