Windy City Rib Fest 2011

Aren't we all looking forward to a warm, breezy summer day when we'll be more concerned with grilling ribs than grilling aldermanic candidates?

Well, good news - Business Partners, The Chamber for Uptown announced today that the Windy City Ribfest will be returning to Uptown this summer! Mark your calendars - July 15th - 17th! From the e-mail blast from Business Partners:

"Professional BBQ chef's will compete while lucky fest goers get to eat! The event will also include live local and national music, arts/craft and other vendors, and an expanded kid's corner and more!

This year, Saturday's headliner is Rusted Root!"


  1. I was a bit of a nay-sayer on this last year. I don't eat ribs and the theme wasn't authentically "Uptown" enough for me.

    Someone should have told me to shut up and just go and have a good time. Because that is exactly what I ended up doing.

    Put this on your calendar, Uptowners! I look forward to raising a pint with you and dancing the night away.

  2. mmmmmmmmmmRIBS! the thought is almost as great as the thought of SUMMERTIME!

  3. Woo! I can make it this year! Stupid down state triathlon I was already signed up for last year. Sister Hazel is one of my favorite bands too! (They played last year)

  4. I had so much fun volunteering at the beer tent last year. I'd love to do so again!

  5. Please bring back the band CATFIGHT who played last year-they were fantastic! They were so good,they are my best memory of the fest! KENNYCAT.
