The Great American Rib Cook-Off and Music Festival sponsored by Marc’s is in Cleveland this weekend to kick off the summer. This event has been going on since 1992, and is a huge deal in Cleveland. Each year, they feature live bands, great ribs, and other great food. The dates of this event are from May 28-31.

The event features 10 award winning rib cooks from all over the country competing for awards. Some of the awards given include best ribs, best sauce, and the peoples choice award.

Each year, they also feature music which is included in the ticket price. The 2010 line-up for music includes Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Mickey Dolenz, and L.A. Guns….My family went to the rib cook off years ago and saw The Village People. It was cool!

2010 admission prices are $7 for adults, but children under 12 are free. Food prices vary once you are inside. Entrance before 3pm each day is free for adults.
