A Big Thank You for Your Support in 2022!

Northeast Ohio came out in full force this weekend for the 23rd Annual Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off & Beer Fest. Attendees of all ages showed up to enjoy ribs, music, and beer over the Holiday Weekend! Rib teams and other vendors worked tirelessly to take care of the good-spirited crowds.

Despite a bit of precipitation Friday, attendance was solid with festival enthusiasts braving the elements to walk the grounds—umbrellas in one hand, ribs in the other.

Weather-wise, the rest of the weekend was a full slab of awesomeness—hot and sunny—with folks able to take reprieve from the heat in the shelter of the second extra large dining tent we added this year.

It was great to see so many sharing in the festive atmosphere of the 23rd Annual Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off & Beer Fest, and we thank you for supporting the great work the Berea City Club does in the community!

Kindest Regards,
