Congratulations to the BBQ winners in all categories. Our sincere thanks to each of the National Touring BBQ Rib Cooking Teams for being a part of this 23rd Annual – Erie Rib Fest. It is very exciting that some of the newest teams to the Ribber Row line up have been recognized by winning in several categories.
Yes, this year was one for the record books with downed vendor tents and wind torn signs but we made it through….you are resilient!
To all of the event visitors. . .you rock! Mother Nature had quite an attitude at this year’s event with the wind driven rain, lightening, and severe downpours yet, you still came out to the party! Thank you!!!! We are already looking forward to 2014.
