It is almost time for Summer, and that means it’s time for Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off.

Popular for its family picnic-style atmosphere, the 24th Annual Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off & Beer Fest held at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds begins on Friday, May 26 at noon and extends throughout the Memorial Day Weekend, wrapping up Monday evening, May 29th.

On Monday, Memorial Day, all retired and active military personnel showing military ID will be admitted for free to the event.

Twelve Rib Teams will compete from all over the United States in hopes of garnering one of the three major awards: Best Ribs, Best Sauce and People’s Choice. Your vote counts and winners will be announced on Monday afternoon at the Main Stage, giving you plenty of time to try out this year’s winners.

Family Fun includes a Kids Activity Area with a Rock-Climbing Wall, a Super-Slide, Swings and more. Enjoy a showcase of a wide variety of musical entertainment spanning generations and genres that will take the stage throughout the weekend.
