Event Series Event Series: Windy City Smokeout

Every year, the Windy City Smokeout festival takes over Chicago, bringing together some of the best BBQ, country music, and craft beer the city has to offer. This four-day festival is the ultimate summer celebration, and a can’t-miss event for anyone who loves good food, good drinks, and good times.

One of the biggest draws of the Windy City Smokeout is the BBQ,  top pitmasters from across the country serve up delicious slow-smoked meats and other classic barbecue dishes. It doesn’t matter what you’re a fan of, they have it here, and it takes amazing. Brisket, ribs, or pulled pork…it’s better than your mother makes! Washing down world-class BBQ with a cold, craft beer is one of the small joys in life.

But the festival isn’t just about the food, the Windy City Smokeout also features a lineup of top country music acts, with performances taking place on multiple stages throughout the festival grounds. With both established and up-and-coming artists taking the stage, there’s always a great mix of old favorites and new discoveries to enjoy.

Thomas Rhett, Parker McCollum, Cody Johnson, and Carrie Underwood are just a few of the names that grace the stages.
