Erie’s Wild Rib Cook Off & Music Festival . . .

Enters its 24th Season in 2014!

Erie’s Wild Rib Cook Off & Music Festival ™ will be celebrating 24 years of delicious, fall-off-the-bone, tender tasty BBQ in 2014.

Beginning on Wednesday, May 28th when most of us are still counting sheep, the National touring, award-winning BBQ Rib Cooking Teams will be at the ready in their portable kitchens loading their bbq cookers with Saint Louis style RIBS!  Their BBQ cuisine will be prepared to perfection with specialty rubs and slathered with secret sauces.  There will be lots to choose from including Full Slab and 1/2 Slab dinners, tasters, sandwiches, pulled pork,  brisket, bbq chicken and more!

As the wee hours of the morning transition into the lunch hour, the enticing aroma of slow-cooked, BBQ will fill the air along the streets of Downtown Erie, PA nearby Perry Square Park on State Street at South Park Row.

Is it about the BBQ?  Yes!!!  Yes!!!  Yes!!!  You bet ‘ya! All winter long we are hankerin’ for the BBQ! The Erie Rib Fest enjoys the distinction ob being the “kick-off” to Summer in the region! It’s not only about the BBQ… it’s also about community, families, friends, stage entertainment, the RIB Kidz FUN ZONE, Bike Night and lots of fun!

Kids will love the freedom to have hours of fun in the “RIB Kidz FUN ZONE” featuring a variety of child-safe inflatable amusements and demonstrations. Parents can take advantage of the low cost Ride-a-Ribba-Ramma Sessions where the kids can enjoy hours of fun for one low price. Kids can ride from 5:00PM till 9:00PM on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for one low $12 price with a Ride-A-Ribba-Ramma PASS.  They can also enjoy the full session on Saturday from 11:00AM to 9:00PM for only $15.  Be sure to download the Ride-A-Ribba-Ramma Discount Coupon. Just going to stop by? Individual ride tickets will also be available.

Courage, skill and endurance will make you a winner in the “BIG Kids ZONE.” We invite Big Kids to show ‘em what you’re made of and display your grit on the challenging Mechanical Bull.  Scheduled Bull Riding Contests are planned. When you get to the Erie Rib Fest, sign-up at the Bull Ride for your chance to win prizes and for some…bragging rights!
