Roc City Rib Fest 2014 Details

Roc City Rib Fest is  going to be bigger than ever!

More BBQ! More Music! More FREE Parking! More Competition! Memorial Day weekend May 23rd to May 26th. See this link for our scheduleDirections HERE!

We can’t think of a better location than the historic Genesee Valley Park a stones throw from University of Rochester and our main charities Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong and Ronald McDonald house of Rochester.

All this fun for only $5 per adult over 12!  No fee to park, no fee for kids activities, no premium band tickets.  And by coming you are directly impacting the community because $1 of that entry goes directly to Golisano Children’s hospital at Strong!

Come witness one of the largest professional BBQ contests in the country!  Professional teams and judges travel from around the country to Roc City to compete for over $22,000 in prizes.

Or stop by Friday night and be a judge yourself for Rochester’s first Food Truck competition, The Roc City Food Truck Throwdown.  You get to vote!

Ticket giveaways are happening now on facebook.

Thanks for your interest we hope to see you Memorial day weekend!
