Several years ago my husband and I looked up on the internet for rib and bbq fests in Illinois and came upon Chilicothe. So, without hesitation we decided to take a road trip and head down there. We met some great people who were shocked that we even knew about the fest and welcomed us with open arms. We had a great time but unfortunately did not keep in touch. We were hoping that we could maybe go again this year but I can't seem to find any information.

You can buy tasting cups and vote. Note: Main Street is the main entrance to the riverfront. Hamilton is one block East.

The Chillicothe Ribfest is next weekend Fri & Sat (OCT 9/10) at Three Sisters Park on/near Spider Hill.

The Spoon River Drive Festival is the same two weekend dates (Follow IL 29 from Peoria through Bartonville to IL Rt. 9. Follow Rt 9 into Canton. It is one of the 10 gateway entrance communities to this county wide party. Be sure to get a map. .
