Ribfest & Wings 2011

Subscribe to A Day In The Smokies!It’s almost time for the annual Ribfest & Wings here in Gatlinburg! Imagine a street festival with live music, the smell and taste of ribs barbecuing, surrounded by tons of people having a great time! I can’t wait!

Join us for Ribfest & Wings!This year Ribfest will be on the Main Parkway here in Gatlinburg, making for a fabulous street party. The event will be held on Thursday, April 28, 2011 from 5-8pm. Wander around and enjoy the atmosphere and music for free, or get an arm band ($12 this year) to experience unlimited taste testing of all the great ribs!

There will be a Hot Wings Eating Contest and an Ice Cream Eating Contest as well as the main event, the competition to make the best ribs and wings. This will be judged in 7 categories, but the most coveted award is the People’s Choice Award. A portion of the proceeds from the armband will go to benefit the Gatlinburg Hospitality Association’s educational scholarship fund.

Stay in a Cabin When You Come For RibFest!“Last year’s vendors included Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, Calhoun’s Restaurant, Corky’s BBQ, Crawdaddy’s Restaurant & Bar, Gatlinburg Elks Lodge #1925, Gatlinburg Fire Department, Gatlinburg Police Department, Pucker’s Sports Bar & Grill, Smoky Mountain Brewery, TGI Friday’s, and Wings & Things Café.”
