Ribfest Is Less Than Two Months Away

Uptown Business Partners are again hosting the RibFest this summer (July 15-17th) on the 4700 block of Broadway.  It was so much fun last summer that we look forward to doing it again. 

However, they need help!  Vendors and volunteers are needed.  (If you stood in line at the beer tent last year, you might remember the need for more volunteers.)  If you've got a couple hours, help make this event great for the second year in a row.

"Help us give this event some local flavor by becoming a vendor or sponsor (click here for the interest form).

We'll also need lots of volunteers for the gates, beer tents, and chamber booth (click here for the volunteer schedule sign-up).  Email or call 773-878-1184 with the date, time, and location you would like to volunteer.

Windy City Ribfest in Uptown is hosted by Business Partners-The Chamber for Uptown in partnership with Chicago Special Events Management."


  1. Where does the money come from to pay the people who play the music?

    Are the community performers paid and how are they chosen?

    I think they should have a variety of food, from restaurants in the area.

    Agami is faboulous, great food, it should be packed every night.

  2. Stu, these are questions that the Chamber should be able to answer for you.
