The Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off returns in 2016 to the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds with more Rib Teams than ever before.
Enjoy this Family Fun Event in a Safe Picnic Style Atmosphere running Memorial Day Weekend – Friday, May 27th thru Monday, May 30th.
We are working hard on all the final details so check back soon for hours, entertainment line-up and for all the rib teams competing for this year’s awards for Best Ribs! Best Sauce! People’s Choice!
The Cook-Off is a Labor of Love by the Berea City Club, whose mission is to put monies back into the community... a mission we would not be able to fulfill were it not for your generous support of our event, so thank you again. Check out the 2015 Photo Gallery to see if we caught you out having fun!
See you back at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds Memorial Day Weekend 2016 – May 27th thru 30th!
Year to year, some things never change about the Cook-Off. From the inflatables, to a rock climbing wall, Berea's National Rib Cook-Off is a family friendly event, and we make an extra special effort to create fun activities for kids. Our Festival offers a picnic type of atmosphere along with FREE PARKING, FREE ADMISSION for kids under 12, and FREE ADMISSION FOR ALL ON FRIDAY NIGHT! MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENT is FREE all weekend long with your paid cook-off admission.

Friday Night is Bike Night brought to you by Rock & Roll City Harley-Davidson. Anyone arriving on a motorcycle throughout the entire weekend (at Gate 5 entrance only off Bagley Road) will be directed to a special designated Midway Parking Area Inside the Gates. Bikers gain FREE Admission Friday Night ONLY and just $5 bucks per rider Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Best Ribs! Best Sauce! People’s Choice! Boasting more award winning ribbers than any Cleveland area rib fest, those who love barbecue think we're tops. After all, what better way to celebrate a great American holiday than with great American food (and what could be more American than barbecue?) So if you're looking for fun in Cleveland Memorial Day Weekend, and don't want to deal with traffic and parking downtown, Berea's National Rib Cook-Off is the place to be (get directions). We look forward to seeing you all this Memorial Day weekend!
