Delicious Ribs
Sweet, spicy, smoky… With the smell of grilling in the air, you’ll have a hard time choosing. Don’t worry though – you cannot go wrong! The National Barbecue Cookers Association (NBCA) vendors at Wisconsin’s Best Rib Fest are all award-winners. Come hungry and come back often to try them all!

Don’t miss out on the Local Cook-Off to catch upcoming regional stars!

Family Activities
From midway games and rides to giant lawn games, you can enjoy summer fun with your family and friends (some activities are free with your Rib Fest entrance, such as the giant lawn games, others have additional cost, such as the midway rides).

Work up an appetite at the Rib Run. We’ll have routes for all ages.

Don’t miss out on the Cornhole Tournament either. It’s a great way to enjoy the weekend festivities with your friends!

A Local BBQ Cook-Off and cooking demonstrations add some more excitement and fun to the weekend.

In 2018, we’ll again have presentations by local groups, so you can learn more about the community we live in.

You can also enjoy the annual Shake the Lake boat races held in nearby Millers Bay, put on by Badger State Outboard Association, during Wisconsin’s Best Rib Fest.


The General Admission ticket admits one person one time on any day of the event. No re-entry allowed.
