Porky’s Rib Fest
After their inaugural year, the organizers of the Porky’s Rib Fest hoped that their event became an oft-circled event on the calendars of barbecue-loving Chicagoans. If this year’s vendor lineup is any indication, they’re already well on their way. Recruited from both inside and outside of Chicago, the award-winning roster includes vendors with decades of combined grilling experience. Hailing from the Lone Star State, Texas Thunder BBQ is a perennial favorite at rib fests around the country. On the hometown front, cooks from Berwyn’s Chicago BBQ Company sling their signature brand of slow-smoked meats. The lineup even includes an international representative: based out of Sydney, Australia, the meat masters of Aussom Aussie tempt taste buds at home and abroad with unexpected flavors such as fruit-based sauces.
Aside from chowing on an international buffet of barbecue, attendees can enjoy 25 different carnival rides along with a continuous stream of live music on two stages. Bands from all over the country perform various music styles including classic rock, country, and blues. See the full music schedule here.
