Brett Eldredge, country music hitmaker, will headline Ribfest from the Exchange Club of Naperville at the DuPage Event Center and Fairgrounds in Wheaton, Illinois on Sunday, Jun 19, 2022 for Meijer Day.

“We’re thrilled to bring back country music to Ribfest and to punctuate it with such a superstar as Brett Eldredge,” says Bev Schafman, chair for 2022 Ribfest, “New stars, new location, new dates, what could be more exciting? This is going to be a great day to hear country music!” Ribfest is returning after a two-year hiatus due to COVID 19 cancellations.

About Brett Eldredge

Warner Music Nashville recording artist Brett Eldredge is baring his soul and embracing vulnerability in his latest tracks, “Holy Water” and “Want That Back.” The new music follows his critically acclaimed fourth studio record, Sunday Drive, which took listeners on an unforgettable musical journey. With help from GRAMMY-winning producers Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, Eldredge brought the album to life by leaning into vulnerability and pulling inspiration from his own personal experiences. He released the brand-new holiday album, Mr. Christmas, in 2021 following his highly celebrated debut Christmas album, Glow. In 2016, the project inspired a single live show in Nashville, which has now grown into the annual Glow LIVE holiday tour, hitting major cities across the country. With seven country radio No. 1’s, nine Gold and Platinum-certified singles, two Gold-certified albums and multiple CMA, ACM and CMT Music nominations and wins, the critically acclaimed entertainer regularly fills arenas nationwide with his powerhouse vocals and electrifying live performances.

Ribfest is the major fundraiser hosted by the Exchange Club of Naperville to help fight child abuse and domestic violence, while strengthening families in our local communities. As a result of these fundraising efforts, in Ribfest’s 32 years, over $18 million has been contributed back to our local communities in support of these causes.

The Club extends its appreciation to the 2022 Ribfest Grand Sponsors: ABC7 Chicago, Astound Broadband Powered by RCN, Bud Light, Coca-Cola, Citgo, Fantasy Amusements Co., Jewel Osco and Meijer.
