What it is: If you’re looking for a festival that offers more than a pound of ribs for every person in attendance – then Ribfest Chicago in North Center is probably gonna be right up your alley. But with games, live music, inflatables and more – it’s also a fest that has something for everyone (though your vegetarian friends might be tough to convince). Head over Friday to see a professional rib eating competition. Then head back Sunday night if you want to hear the panel of judges announce their winners for best ribs at the festival.
