The two day event features several team competitions in different categories such as the best pork ribs, the best brisket, the best chicken and the best sauce.

  1. I love the Rock N Ribs Festival. I have volunteered for it the past several years–it is so much fun. I don’t know if I will get to this year yet but I definitely plan on going.

  2. Looks like it goes to several good causes and who wouldn’t want to see a pie-eating contest? If they can get the KC Chiefs cheerleaders to cheer me on, I might even enter the pie-eating contest myself.

  3. I may go to this. Could be in the cards…I like bbq and my bf would dig the motorcycle show so yeah. I’ll keep that weekend open.

  4. This sounds great! I bet I can talk my husband into joining me for this festival…Ribs and Bass Pro. What more could a man ask for?

  5. I am not a huge fan of ribs, but Margaritas sound great. This sounds like a great thing for the whole family, something for everyone.

  6. This sounds like a lot of fun. I have always heard it advertised on the radio, but never got a chance to go. This year I will try to more of an effort.

  7. No, i didnt get a chance to go to this, though i really wanted to, i go out of town on Saturday nights so im sad to say that i didnt get a chance to see if springfield does ribs as good as bastrop or saginaw/baycity. or evern dallas. ive been to many many ribs fests.

  8. How have I not heard of this event?! I can’t wait until March this year for the 11th annual Rock n’ Ribs because you’ll be sure to see me there.
