Twin City Ribfest - June 7-10, 2018
The 14th annual Twin City Ribfest fires up at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds, just five minutes from downtown, June 7-10, 2018. The popular summer barbecue has been featured in USA Today's roundup of barbecue festivals across America and you can get a taste of it right here in Winston-Salem. RibFest is especially loved for placing the spotlight on North Carolina-based food and beverage products, including locally headquartered Texas Pete hot sauce and Foothills Brewing craft beer. For more than a decade, the festival continues to thrive with its combination of national BBQ purveyors competing for awards and customers, and quality entertainment on its music stages.
Musical acts over the years have included local, regional and national acts including the Avett Brothers, Vanilla Ice, Cyrille Neville, Hal Ketchum and many more.
