Your Ultimate Guide to Windy City Smokeout, Chicago’s Country Music Festival

Calling all Chicagoans! Put on your cowboy boots and get ready to raise an ice-cold beer because Chicago’s hottest country festival is back and better than ever this week.

Windy City Smokeout is set to take over the United Center’s parking lot come July 8-11, and Celeb Secrets will be on the scene documenting every moment and chatting with the chart-topping musicians.

The event will be the first the get-together to return to the city amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, therefore, the festival will be taking proper precautions to protect the city and its community.

Before you experience a long weekend full of country music, finger-lickin’ barbecue from the world’s best pit-masters, eats from some of Chicago’s fan-favorite restaurants, and craft beer from local and national breweries, you’ll have to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test from within 72 hours or proof of being fully vaccinated for at least 14 days. All attendees will also have to submit a daily COVID symptom questionnaire through the CLEAR mobile application – which you can find on their website here.

We know that all of this can be overwhelming, so that’s why the Celeb Secrets team is giving you a day-by-day breakdown on what you can expect from the four-day festival, plus suggestions on what BBQ and booze you should be enjoying during your time at the United Center. You can still purchase last minute tickets at
