Thirty miles from downtown Chicago in Naperville, Ribfest continues to be a summertime destination event for music fans. Over the years, this weekend-long Fourth of July celebration has gained stature as a notable local festival with a wide range of national acts. This year, the crowd of thousands enjoyed Living Colour, Billy Idol, ZZ Ward, Grand Funk, Bad Company, rising local stars Empty Pockets and more.
Sponsored by The Exchange Club of Naperville, Ribfest proceeds benefit agencies working toward the elimination of child abuse and domestic violence.
