GENERAL INFORMATION

 The 7th Annual Little Bear Ribfest is returning to Vernon Hills  on August 18th and 19th. We have put together another amazing line-up of award-winning blues music in addition to several restaurants serving their most delectable ribs and side dishes! Grab your lawn chairs, head to Century Park, and enjoy this fun festival along the shores of Little Bear Lake.

Little Bear Ribfest is truly a community event. Our 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 eat barbecued ribs!

Tickets ($5 for individuals over 5 years old) are available for purchase at the event gate on festival dates.
