6 Corners BBQ Fest will return for the fourth year to Chicago's Portage Park neighborhood, showcasing a weekend of local restaurants dishing out a menu of summer classics: ribs, burgers, hot dogs and more! This eclectic neighborhood along Milwaukee Avenue will be reflected in the wide range of activities -- from professional wrestling to crafts for adults; from pop-up street theater to an amateur cook-off. Plus, the kids will have a blast on the inflatables. Two stages showcase the finest in local bands and family entertainment, and all eyes will be on our 2nd Annual 'Saturday MIGHT Wrestling? Exhibition. While patrons are wrist-deep in BBQ sauce, they can stroll the marketplace offering goods of all sorts!
