From Greg Carroll at Business Partners, the Chamber For Uptown:
"We’re gearing up for the 9th Annual Windy City RibFest right here in our neighborhood from Friday, June 30 through Sunday, July 2! Windy City RibFest features top local and national ribbers and is expected to bring 25,000 attendees into Uptown this year.
The fest also offers a Mainstage lineup featuring local rock/pop and classic indie acts as well as local tribute bands.
For the 6th year, Business Partners, the Chamber for Uptown will be the beneficiary of this festival and will receive a portion of the proceeds from gate sales/beer sales as well as all tips from shifts that we can cover at the beer tents. This funding helps us accomplish our mission of building a strong, unified business environment; facilitating economic development; and strengthening community — all to nurture a diverse, vibrant, thriving, and strong Uptown.
This is where you come in! We’re going big this year and trying to fill all shifts at both beer tents instead of just the one, and we can use all the volunteers we can get. We hope you can join us this year, and encourage you to recruit your family, friends, or co-workers to build a team!
All volunteers will receive a complimentary volunteer t-shirt with the Windy City Ribfest logo and a high-five from the Chamber staff.

We have a limited number of spots for volunteers who will be helping out in the Chamber Tent as well. Reply to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
We hope you can join us for what is sure to be another great event for Uptown!"
Rib Fest will take place on the 4700 block of Broadway.
