Ribfest to Wheaton?

The Exchange Club of Naperville’s Ribfest may be moving to the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton. On Tuesday the DuPage County Public Works Committee gave a unanimous informal consensus to allow the event to move forward, subject to coordination with the DuPage County Election Division. The committee said proposed dates for Ribfest are June 17 through June 20, which would fall right in the middle of early voting held at the fairgrounds for the primary on June 28. This approval is just one step in the process: organizers still need to get permits for the event and the go ahead from the City of Wheaton. Ribfest had been a fixture in Naperville for 32 years, until construction work at Knoch Park prompted its move. The festival had been slated to be held in Romeoville over the past two years but those instances were canceled due to the pandemic.
