Rogers Park is well-known for its laid-back, community-oriented festivals. Don’t look now, but another great festival is coming up this Saturday—Rogers Pork.
As its name indicates, Rogers Pork is a barbecue festival put on by the Jarvis Square businesses.
This year’s FREE festival will be bigger and better than ever before with an expanded festival area and not one, but two live music stages! Over 40 vendors will be on hand offering an array of amazing art, gifts and services. And, of course, the festival will feature savory BBQ and other food delicacies from Amazing Aaron, R Public House, Robinson’s Ribs, and Three Legged Tacos!
While at the festival, stop by my booth and say hello. My staff and I will be located just west of the Jarvis Red Line station on the north side of the street.
Rogers Pork is adding a new “VIP Section” this year where you can experience Rogers Pork in style! The H2Vino VIP Tents offer comfortable reserved seating near each stage and your own bartender pouring cava and rosé! VIP tickets are $20 and include a glass of rosé.
A portion of the proceeds of the event will go to support A Just Harvest, which fights poverty and hunger in Rogers Park by providing nutritious meals daily while cultivating community and economic development and organizing for a more just society.
Stop by Jarvis Square on Saturday and enjoy what makes our neighborhood so special.
