Ribfest is turning five years old this year!! Mark your calendars for Aug 21-22, 2015. We are busy finalizing our talent line-up, once again bringing you some of the best music and food in the midwest. Stay tuned, as we will be announcing our talent line-up very, very soon. The Little Bear Ribfest is truly a community event. Special thanks to the Village of Vernon Hills – Public Works, Fire and Police Departments. Everyone works tirelessly to bring you this event, and it shows. Vernon Hills has arguably the best festival site in all of Lake County.
