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.

About the Artist: Elle King

Singer and songwriter Elle King blends pop, blues, and rock’n’roll into a sound that’s all her own. She loves banjos and hobos. After hearing the all-girl pop-punk band the Donnas when she was nine years old in Ohio, she decided she wanted to be a singer and musician. By 13, she was playing guitar and later learned to play banjo. King began street busking and gigging around New York at age 16, moved to Philadelphia to attend the University of Arts, and majored in painting and film. After college, she spent time in Copenhagen and Los Angeles before settling in Brooklyn. After signing to FCA Records, she released The Elle King EP which featured the Mob Wives Chicago theme song “Playing For Keeps.” and she made her network television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman. In 2015, King released her debut album Love Stuff, featuring the hit single “Ex’s & Oh’s” which reached the top of Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart. She made chart history becoming the second female artist in 18 years to reach #1 at Alternative Radio, and “Ex’s & Oh’s” earned Elle 2 Grammy nominations. The track made the Top 10 in four different radio formats, and her current feature with Dierks Bentley on “Different For Girls” is now top 10 at Country radio, the 5th radio format Top 10 for this unique and distinctive new artist.
