Rib Fest

In addition to the Judge’s Choice award this year we are bringing back the People’s Choice award.  This award will include a cash prize of $500.00!

We invite you to decide who will win the People’s Choice award at the end of the Rib Fest.  With several teams competing for the title, we thought you should know the basics of the “rib crawl”  so you can try them all and cast your ballot.  Presale ticket’s & ballots will be available for purchase at local business and queen candidates.

  • Goeman Agency LLC
  • Citizen Alliance Bank
  • Wildhare Floral Shop
  • Sweep Hardware
  • Ambassadors  & Candidates

Tickets/Ballots will also be available along the parade route for 1 hour prior to the start of the parade.  If you didn’t take advantage of the pre-sale options, be sure to stop at the Rib Fest entrance. Then let the tasting begin!  Each contestant will be offering you a single bone sample.  You will have your ticket punched at each booth.   After you have tried them all, return your completed ballot to the ballot box at the entrance.  Ballots should be turned in by 7 p.m. Winners will be announced during the Coronation!

Judge’s Choice Prizes this year are:
First Place      $500.00
Second Place $250.00
Third Place     $100.00
