Exchange Club of Naperville's Ribfest Cancellation

The Exchange Club of Naperville, organizers of the 33rd annual Ribfest, have spent the past few months in constant careful situation analysis and discussion, in order to accurately and comprehensively assess the current climate for summer festivals. In consideration of the current COVID-19 conditions and recent capacity restrictions mandated by the state, the Club has concluded that the health and safety of Ribfest attendees, volunteers, and entertainers cannot be guaranteed for such a large-scale public event. Therefore, the Exchange Club of Naperville, along with the Village of Romeoville, regretfully believes that Ribfest simply cannot go forward this year. Please click here for full details.

Please consider making a tax-deductible charitable donation in any amount, to support the mission of the Exchange Club of Naperville and its community partners in the battle against child abuse and domestic violence in all forms.
