70,000 Fans/50,000 Pounds of BBQ/25 Hours of Food, Fun & Music
After being selected & featured on the Food Network’s 2014 “Eating America, with Anthony Anderson” & televised to 100 million households & 150 countries, Ribfest Chicago returns with more smokin’ music and barbecue as we cook up Chicago’s favorite food & music festival. Ribfest Chicago celebrates its seventeenth summer this year & we couldn’t be more excited.
From humble beginnings in a local parking lot, Ribfest relocated to Lincoln Avenue and eventually grew from three blocks to five blocks, from a two-day party to a three-night event, and from 5,000 attendees to 70,000 fans (in 2014). The BBQ component has grown from five local restaurants to thirty Chicagoland rib & non-rib vendors, while 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.
Music, BBQ, Chicago and summer fun doesn’t get any better. More highlights include the celebrity-judged “Best Ribs” award, an amateur rib-eating competition & “RibMania,” the Midwest’s only professional rib-eating competition featuring several top ranked eaters and sanctioned by IFOCE/Major League Eating.

Featuring Alt-Country, Americana, Indie Rock, World Music, Roots, Soul and Kids Music July 10-12, 2015 in Lincoln Square Summertime brings plenty of interesting options for festival entertainment in the city and the suburbs, with each event highlighting a neighborhood or various foods or music or wine tastings.

Over 30,000 fans attend Square Roots each year to enjoy more than 40 local craft brews (including special batch and limited release taps), great food and the diverse genres of entertainment that only the Old Town School of Folk Music can provide.

Live entertainment: 70 acts including music, jams, dance and family activities on 4 stages (2 indoor and 2 outdoor). Craft Beer: More than 40 tasty selections (plus private batch and limited release special tastings) from the best local and regional craft breweries. Cuisine: Eclectic fare from amazing Lincoln Square and Ravenswood restaurants. Family Entertainment: Fun family activities, children’s entertainment, games and crafts.
