Thousands of community members joined us for the “ProteinPalooza,” a day of food, family-friendly activities, concerts and of course, barbecue!

Attendees enjoyed the sounds of outstanding bands, including The Neverly Brothers, Expo 76 and the Total Pro Horns, Bill “The Buddha” Dickens, and the Glen Ellyn School of Rock Instructors, and noshed on perfect festival food from Steamboat Barbeque, Real Urban BBQ, The Stand, Skuddlebutts and Cap May Crab Cake Factory. The kids had a blast at the Piglet Playland, featuring a bounce house, dunk tank and more!

More than 60 teams entered the barbecue competition, and the winners were:
