The Best Value in Town
Welcome to the home of Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off, recently named one of 15 Can’t Miss Food Events in Cleveland. Year to year, some things never change about the Cook-Off. From face-painting to a rock climbing wall, Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off makes a special effort to create family friendly environment with a picnic style atmosphere. Our Festival offers FREE PARKING ALL WEEKEND LONG, FREE ADMISSION for kids under 12, and FREE ADMISSION FRIDAY BEFORE 5PM & ONLY $5 AFTER 5PM AND JUST $5 ON SATURDAY, SUNDAY, AND MONDAY (MEMORIAL DAY). MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENT is FREE all weekend long with your paid cook-off admission.
Best Ribs! Best Sauce! People’s Choice! Boasting more award winning ribbers than any Cleveland area rib fest, Berea Rib is a can’t miss event for those who love barbecue. After all, what better way to celebrate a great American holiday than with great American food (and what could be more American than barbecue?) So if you’re looking for fun in Cleveland Memorial Day Weekend, Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off is the place to be (get directions).
We look forward to seeing you all out at the fairgrounds, May 25-28, 2018, for this year’s Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off, so mark your calendars!
