It’s that time of year again–time to get out and feast on some delicious food and take in some great entertainment at RibFest. The event starts today (June 6) and goes through Saturday, June 9.
Let’s talk about food first. There will be ribs, of course, as well as a variety of sides and other meats to complement the rib-feasting experience. Today, Thursday, and Friday will feature the “Lip-Smackin’ Lunch Special.” This means you pay for the meat and the sides are on the house. Admission is also FREE from 11am-1pm during the Lip-Smackin’ Lunch Special. The lineup of cooks this year is as follows: Cowboy’s Barbeque & Rib Co., Porky ‘n’ Beans, Johnson’s Bar-B-Que, Willinghams World Champion BBQ, Aussom Aussie’s BBQ, Rasta Joe’s BBQ, and Desperado’s BBQ & Ribs. These are all tried and true rib cookers that are sure to offer something that will please your taste buds.
Here is the list of bands you will be able to see on the stage: James Otto, Foghat, Craig Morgan, and Cherry Pie Tour which consists of FireHouse, Trixter, and Warrant. There’s also entertainment just for the kids–Games Galore and the inflatable games will be there plus live stage shows by A Touch of Magic and Penny & Pals!
Now that you’re all excited (and hungry), all you have to do is wait till 11am today before you can go and enjoy all the food and fun that RibFest has to offer!
