Welcome to BBQ Ribfest!

For all you rockin’ blues, brews, and BBQ lovers we have got some of the best, most awarded, BBQ grilling teams and awesome rockin’ blues bands from across the country. This year, special thanks again to our presenting sponsor Blackburn & Green. Whether you prefer hot and spicy or sweet and tangy, your taste buds will never have it so good, unless of course you have been part of our party before.

The 23nd annual Ribfest is four days of unbelievably delicious, mouth-watering BBQ served up just the way you love it by National Award Winning BBQ teams from across the country. This year’s event starts on Thursday July 30th at 11:30 AM and ends on Sunday August 2nd at 9:30PM. Each year upwards of 40,000 ribfeasters descend on Headwaters Park in downtown Ft. Wayne where over twenty-five tons of incredible BBQ is consumed during Ft. Wayne’s favorite summer festival. Brisket, ribs, pulled pork, rib sandwiches, bbq chicken, and so much more.

Family Fun

It is important to us that this event is family friendly. It’s become a big favorite for families to take Dad on Father’s Day. So many families have been able to enjoy it over the years.  It’s family friendly from a financial perspective also with free admission Thursday through Saturday until 5:30 p.m.
