A Big Thank You for Your Support in 2024!

Thank You Northeast Ohio for your support of the Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off & Beer Fest over the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend! Nearly 40,000 of you made our event part of your holiday plans and we are genuinely grateful. We can all agree that if we could deliver that AMAZING weather each and every year, it would be at the top of the checklist. Look forward to seeing you back at Fairgrounds next May 23rd thru 26th, 2025 as we celebrate our 26th Anniversary Event.
