It all started in a corn field in Avon, NY…
A bunch of friends and family decided to have some fun and put together a small BBQ festival and rib cook off on Labor day weekend 2008. A whopping 7 teams later and just over a thousand festival goers we were hooked! A year later we moved to the beautiful Ontario Beach Park and to Memorial day weekend. In the years since we have seen the competition and festival blow up! Over 100 team and 30,000 people!! All this making a reality our number one mission: to give back to our community, especially to the children, through our charities.
The Roc City Rib Fest family has been brought together by our shared love of BBQ and supporting our local communities. We all have full time jobs yet commit our spare time to building the festival to be as great as it can be.
On behalf of the Roc City Rib Fest family we invite you to come on down, kick back and enjoy all that the Festival has to offer!
