Due to unforseen circumstances, I was unable to attend Adobo Fest. However, FAN-Chicago has a great recap on their site showing that the event was very successful.
Adobofest was a true show of spirit, community and fun on a beautiful day. On Sunday, September 13th, on the Northwest Side of Chicago at LaBagh Woods, over 500 attendees experienced our 2nd annual Adobofest. All of this could not have been possible without the incredible contributions of all of our volunteers, contestants and event / charity partner Gawad Kalinga!
