  • Since 2009, 100% of the Net Proceeds from the Glen Ellyn
    Backyard BBQ have been donated to Bridge Communities, Inc.

    The Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ is an all-volunteer organization,
    originally formed by like-minded people who love barbecue
    and desired to give back to their community.

    In only 11 years, the GEBYBBQ has grown from a small block party
    to a much-anticipated annual event with thousands of attendees!

    Your participation in this event helps make a difference
    in the lives of countless families in DuPage county.

12 Wonderful Years!

This year we’re celebrating the 12th Anniversary of the GEBYBBQ,
competing, eating barbeque, listening to music and chilling with our friends
all in support of Bridge Communities.
