UPTOWN — The Windy City Ribfest will kick off in Uptown July 5-7, offering North Siders another barbeque bash just a month after Ribfest Chicago brought thousands of pork lovers to nearby North Center.
The event kicks off Friday evening at North Broadway and West Lawrence Avenue.
In its fifth year, Windy City Ribfest 2013 will feature "finger lickin' slabs from some of the best local and national ribbers," including including Uncle Bub's BBQ, Famous Dave's, Chicago BBQ Company and Aussom Aussie Australian BBQ, according to Uptown's Chamber of Commerce, which runs the event.
The event also includes beer and wine, arts and crafts and a daytime play area for kids, according to the chamber, which said it is asking attendees for a $6 suggested donation.
