Head to North Center to dig into more than 50,000 pounds of ribs and BBQ and don't forget to grab some napkins. The annual celebration of saucy pork brings together more than 30 vendors, including Austin’s Texas Lightning, BBQ Supply Co, Real Urban Barbecue, Blackwood BBQ and Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro. After you pig out, stick around for live music, activities and more.

It's also one of the best music FREE fests in Chicago since 1999 (way before Pfork, Lolla, DoD, Riot) featuring the same touring bands. 

Think energetic live indie/rock/pop/alt country shows (Orwells, Dale Earnhardt JrJr, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Jason Isbell, X Ambassadors, Wild Feathers, Features, J Roddy Walston, BRR, Jukebox the Ghost, HaHa Tonka, etc etc etc),
