Festival Season has arrived in Chicago! Friends, don’t let the grey weather and perpetual rain cause you to sing the blues. Strap on your dancing shoes and grab your folding chair for a weekend of some of what Chicago does best, music and ribs.
Both Blues Fest and Rib Fest started today!
11:00 a.m.–9:30 p.m.
Gather with your Chicago neighbors and dance to free music by some of the best blues artists bred in our hometown. Enjoy free samples of snacks and beverages, drawings for prizes from sponsors, and shopping for tee-shirts, hats, guitars, jewelry, posters, and CDs.
Hopefully you had a light lunch because Rib Fest is the place for dinner tonight! BBQ masters from all over Chicagoland will compete for the title of “Best Ribs.” Witness the second annual rib-eating contest, RibMania. With two stages for music and “Kids Square” Ribfest hosts plenty of food and entertainment for the family!
