The 6th Annual Little Bear Ribfest is returning to Vernon Hills once again! Mark your calendars for Aug 19-20, 2016. Artist announcements coming soon! Little Bear Ribfest is truly a community event. Special thanks to the Village of Vernon Hills and the volunteer groups who support the event each year. Everyone works tirelessly to bring you this event, and it shows. Vernon Hills has arguably the best festival site in all of Lake County. Now let’s get ready for some ribs!!
