Important Information About Ribfest Chicago 2020Important Information About Ribfest Chicago 2020


Out of an abundance of concern for the safety and health of the Northcenter community in the wake of COVID-19, the Northcenter Chamber of Commerce has made the difficult decision that Ribfest Chicago will not take place in 2020.

Whether you planned to sponsor, vend, volunteer or visit for the first time, or have been with us for many years, we thank you for your loyalty, commitment and interest in our event. We remain proud to stand behind Ribfest Chicago, which has put nearly $400,000 back into the community over the last 15 years.
