To our Smokeout family & friends,

We are truly sorry to announce that Windy City Smokeout will not take place this year due to COVID-19. We love nothing more than enjoying a weekend of country music & BBQ with you, but the health and safety of you, our beloved artists, pitmasters & employees has always been our top priority. While this decision wasn’t easy, it is necessary to keep everyone safe.

We’re optimistic we can all get together again next summer. If the public health situation allows, we will hold the festival on July 9-11, 2021. Our buddies Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley & Jon Pardi will return as our festival headliners. That’s right; same parking lot, same party.

The 30 day refund window for 2020 ticket holders closed on July 17, 2020. All remaining ticket holders will have their tickets honored for 2021. Guests who are keeping their tickets for next year will receive a food and beverage credit. GA ticket holders will get a $10 per day credit for single day and 3-day tickets. VIP ticket holders will get a $30 per day for single day tickets and a $100 credit for 3-day tickets. We will also be making a donation on your behalf to Feed Chicago.

Thank you for your continued support. Keep following along on @windycitysmokeout so we can bring you the best in country music & BBQ virtually until we can all be together again.

Stay safe. Be well. Take care of each other. We can’t wait to see you all soon.
