Ribs and R&B Music Festival

Forget fine wine and cheese — BBQ and R&B are this summer’s classic pairing, and you can have both at the 19th annual Ribs and R&B fest. Professional “Ribbers” will present their best take on smoked and grilled ribs for the enviable title of “Best Ribs,” while over 30 live soul, gospel, and R&B acts perform on the riverfront all weekend long. Past acts include the Temptations and the Dramatics, and this year’s lineup stars Chante Moore, Deon Yates, and Kimmi Horne.
