We’re celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ Competition!

Join us for an amateur BBQ competition and live music throughout the day! There will be BBQ and other food vendors as well as cold beer, wine, and seltzers. Kids will have fun exploring our Piglet Playland.

A few of the acts scheduled to appear include Mary Macaroni, Panic at the Costco, EP8, and Libido Funk.

This year, we will be at a new location in downtown Glen Ellyn at the Duane Street Parking Lot west of the Glen Ellyn Public Library.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the families served by Bridge Communities. Thank you for supporting Bridge families when they need you the most!
