No summer party is complete without good food, hot music, and cold beer. The Windy City Smokeout combines all three into one epic celebration, and it’s returning to Chicago this weekend. Twenty of the country’s best BBQ pitmasters and over two dozen country music artists will come together for three full days of food and fun. We’re happy to once again join in on the fun as an official Smokeout sponsor.
This year’s musical headliners include Chris Young, Old Dominion, and Cole Swindell, and they’ll be supported by 24 other artists who will be playing throughout the day. BBQ fans will see lots of familiar names in attendance, including local options like Lillie’s Q and Bub City, along with the legendary Myron Mixon, a four-time world barbecue champion.
We’ll be powering the Chicago Blackhawks Artist Lounge. Stop by for a break from the sun, to try your hand at a game of bubble hockey, and maybe even rub elbows with some of the Blackhawks themselves. Enjoy intimate performances by some of the artists, and learn how to beef up your BBQ game with daily grilling demos by one of the pitmasters.
This year’s Windy City Smokeout takes place in Parking Lot C of the United Center, with gates opening at 2pm on Friday and 12pm on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are still available, and you can find them here: Windy City Smokeout Tickets.
