Event Info

Committed to keeping YOU Safe & Informed

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the statewide ban on large gatherings and events, Berea City Club, producers of Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off & Beer Festival, has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event, scheduled for Friday, May 22nd thru Monday, May 25th, 2020 at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds.

We are extremely proud of our annual festival and we know that it has become the official kick-off to summer for Northeast Ohio. We are genuinely grateful for your support over the past 21 years. The precautions we are taking now will ensure that we are able to bring back this event that helps so many in our community next year.

Whether you are still on the job, working from home, or on the front lines fighting this pandemic, please continue to take care of yourself and we will see you again in 2021! Be Safe! Be Strong!
