The Nebraska Pork Producers’ Capital City Ribfest is a 4 day summer street festival featuring award-winning BBQ and music. The 2011 event attracted more than 26,000 people!
Ribfest is the largest, most popular summer event in downtown Lincoln.
Food, showcasing great barbeque, plus live music on the Ribfest Sound Stage featuring some of the best local and regional talent, highlight the four-day event.
Award-winning BBQ pit bosses from around the country gather to showcase their talents and serve up award-winning barbeque to southeastern Nebraskans. This festival is unique to Lincoln in that barbeque is the focal point of the event - offering the public a chance to sample a variety of barbeque recipes from across the nation and even Australia.
BBQ fans can now taste Southern, Texas style, Australian, Memphis and Southwestern BBQ, all without leaving Lincoln!
The 2011 Lincoln Journal Star Ground Zero “Best of Show” winners were:
1. Porky n’ Beans of Port St. Lucie, FL
and Desperado’s BBQ of Hinckley, OH (tie)
2. Johnson’s BBQ of Chesapeake, VA
Festival entertainment including live folk, classic rock, blues and country music is featured throughout the 4 day event. In 2011, 13 bands and solo artists kept the stage rocking and the rib lovers entertained.
Ribfest generated multiple barrels of donated food for The Food Bank of Lincoln. The public donated cans of food on Thursday and Friday during the lunch hour as an admission donation. Thanks to all who contibuted.
