Will the Naperville Ribfest still be called the Naperville Ribfest next year when it’s held in Romeoville? This year was the final year for the food and musical festival after 32 years in Knoch Park. Due to a 5-million dollar improvement to install a new softball field with synthetic turf the Naperville Park District told the exchange club they can no longer use the space for the annual festival.
The new location next year will be in Romeoville at the municipal complex on Romeo Road between Route 53 and Weber Road. The new location will have more space than Knoch Park. Ribfest raises money to combat domestic violence and child abuse.
