The
Wallflowers

Arock band from Los Angeles, California, fronted by Jakob Dylan. They have released six studio albums, one compilation album and have had various songs on television and movie soundtracks.

Rib Festival

Delicious Details

WAY BACK IN 2007, we had the brilliant idea to merge two of our best festivals into one big party. We’re happy to say that once again, Ribfest’s mouth-watering and award-winning ribs will be available at River Roots Live!

This isn’t your neighbors BBQ. Our vendors travel the nation and represent the top tier of professional BBQ cookers in the U.S. BBQ doesn’t get much better than this, folks!

So loosen your belt, because we suggest trying every single one of ‘em throughout the weekend, since each brings their own unique flavor to the table. Beside, you’ve got to try them all to give a fair vote for the People’s Choice Award! With music and food you have no excuse to miss River Roots Live 2013.

The Skinny

Friday – Open at 11:00 a.m. in the park. Don’t forget about lunch. We have more rib vendors this year to make sure nobody goes hungry! Saturday – Rib vendors open all day, 11:00 a.m. – Midnight.

Rib Vendors

A ballot will be provided to vote for your favorite rib vendor. Receive and return your ballots at the volunteer check-in tent. National Rib Vendors: Uncle Bub’s, Porky Chicks BBQ, Big Bone BBQ, Texas Thunder, and Chicago BBQ! Local Rib Vendors: Steve’s Meat Shop and John’s Rib House.
