2018 is the fifteenth year of this family-focused event. Ribfest hosts 12 vendors selling BBQ ribs and chicken, as well as several other diverse food and non-food vendors. Live entertainment is provided on the main stage, featuring a broad range of musical acts primarily focused on local talent, including Singfest, an amateur singing talent competition that culminates with the finals being held at Ribfest.

The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. There are 34,000 Rotary Clubs in over 200 countries and 1.2 million business professionals and community leaders. $700 million was raised to help in eradicating polio where over 2 billion children in 122 countries were immunized.
