Unleash Your Inner Carnivore At Chicago's Ribfest

Picture of Culture Trip Chicago
Updated: 2 June 2016
Ribfest Chicago might seem like a bit of a niche operation based on its name, but there is so much more to this festival than ribs. Don’t get us wrong, ribs are the heart of this festival with 15 rib vendors on site competing both for the People’s Choice award for best ribs and a celebrity judging. There’s also RibMania, a competitive rib-eating event on Friday. However, the festival will host more than thirty local rib and non-rib venders, meaning even vegetarians and people with dietary restrictions can enjoy the festival, and everyone can enjoy gelato. Add in musical acts, an artist showcase, and a dedicated square of child’s games and activities, and Ribfest has a little something for carnivores and herbivores alike. There is a $5 suggested donation at the gate.
