FRIDAY ENTERTAINMENT

When: Friday, May 24th, 2024
FEATURING: THE TEA BAGS & FOLLOW THE SUN

Follow the SunFriday night the fairgrounds will sizzle with the sounds of charring ribs along with Brit rock from The Tea Bags, and American rock from Follow the Sun. That’s right, we’ll be cooking up some good times.

Hot sauce, hot live music, and some of the best barbecue in the world. It couldn’t get any better than that… unless perhaps we were to offer free ribs? …Well, we aren’t, so it’s not going to get any better—but still, great food and great entertainment makes for a pretty fine evening. Note: Admission on Friday is FREE before 5pm, and $10 per person after 5PM.

The Corvette @ Corsa show is also in Berea and draws 200-300 Corvettes from around the Midwest.

While Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off in no way guarantees universal harmony will result, the world being what it is, we’re willing to give her a shot. Subject to availability, the winner will receive either a diamond studded tiara, brand new Jet Ski, or a bouquet and hearty round of applause.
