Meat eaters rejoice! Ribfest is just over a month away, Friday, June 10 to Sunday, June 12. In addition to an abundance of meat, the Northcenter street festival also features a professional rib-eating contest and quality musical entertainment.

This will be the 13th annual Ribfest, which covers about three blocks on Lincoln Avenue between Irving Park Road and Warner Avenue and requires a volunteer staff of about 700. It has come a long way since its humble beginnings: three guys in a bank parking lot.

Check out our photos from last year’s festival to get your gut and glands ready for the meat sweats of ribs under a summer sun.
