About

Over the past 22 years, residents from all over Northeastern Ohio have come to the Cleveland suburb of Berea to enjoy the Memorial Day Weekend annual symbolic summer kick-off: Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off & Beer Fest. The Cook-off has established itself as one of the premier events in the Cleveland area, and is accomplished through the tireless work of the Berea City Club, Inc. and local volunteers. The Berea City Club was founded in 1998 and have, since their inception, donated over a half-million dollars into the community. Projects either partially or fully funded and planned by the Berea City Club include: The Berea Clock Tower, Coe Lake Bridge, and Lou Groza Boulevard. With your help, the Berea City Club hopes to continue in its mission to improve the community… and all you really have to do to help is eat ribs (not a bad deal for you!). Memorial Day weekend will mark the festival’s 24th year at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds. The exact dates to remember are May 28-31, 2021.

Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off & Beer Fest draws Area and National Rib Teams to compete for First, Second and Third Place in a variety of areas: Best Ribs, Best Sauce and other Awards. For more information call Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off HOTLINE NUMBER: 440-234-5181.

Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off & Beer Fest is the signature event for Berea’s City Club. Their hard work is not just a weekend happening, it’s a year long event to all of its volunteer organizers. The Berea City Club’s Mission Statement is: To promote positive civic interests, for the betterment of The City of Berea. Perhaps unknown to many Berea residents, the Berea City Club is a not for profit organization contributing proceeds generated by its fundraising projects back to the community. In fact, since the beginning of the Berea City Club Inc. in late 1998, these business and community leaders have managed to donate over $1,000,000 from their events to City of Berea projects and local organizations. In fact, the list is too long to present every group that has been helped by the fine folks at the Berea City Club Inc. From churches to pageants, to Kiwanis and sports teams, to Polaris and school booster organizations, and including Berea Welfare and Options for Families, to arts and scouts, the Berea City Club Inc. is there.

And the primary fundraiser remains Memorial Day weekend’s gala, the 24th Annual Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off & Beer Fest.

A select group of Rib Teams will compete all weekend long to satisfy your appetite for ribs, serving up the best ribs and sauce you will ever taste! Other traditional Fair Foods will also be available.

The Children’s Activity Area will feature a Euro bungee trampoline, inflatable bounce house, and the ever popular Rock-Climbing Wall.
