A Note of Thanks
Thank you, Northeast Ohio, and beyond for making the 2018 Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off part of your Memorial Day Holiday Weekend plans. We know you have many things (Cleveland Cavaliers, Indians, Family Outings, Graduation Parties, Weddings and other festivals) to choose from and we appreciate that we were one of your stops.
The Berea City Club’s “Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off” is our signature event and we are 20 years strong this year because of you. The Volunteer Groups donating their time over the long holiday weekend benefit from their participation with our donating back to their organization following the event.
We are incredibly proud of all “walks of life” that came out and feel welcomed at our festival. We saw a lot of familiar faces from over the years to some new faces that let us know they were happy to have found out about our festival. Be sure to click on 2018 Gallery to see this year’s photo album.
It’s never goodbye, but so long for now – we look forward seeing you again in 2019 (Mark your calendar for Friday, May 24th thru Monday, May 27th)

The Best Value in Town
Best Ribs! Best Sauce! People’s Choice! Boasting more award winning ribbers than any Cleveland area rib fest, Berea Rib is a can’t miss event for those who love barbecue. 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, Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off is the place to be (get directions).
We look forward to seeing you all out at the fairgrounds, May 24-27, 2019, for next year’s Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off, so mark your calendars!
