Windy City Ribfest takes place on Broadway between Lawrence and Leland. A $5 donation is suggested at the gates. A portion of the proceeds from this event supports Business Partners - The Chamber for Uptown's annual programming."
We haven't heard what the exact parking restrictions are this year. Attached is a map of parking restrictions for previous Ribfests. If you park anywhere near Broadway and Lawrence or Broadway and Leland, pay very close attention to the tow signs. We can confirm that Leland is closed (again) at Broadway, and there are probably similar prohibitions around Ribfest.
