Central City is throwing a big summer party. Whiskey Alibi will perform, food trucks will be there, a cruise is planned, and a backyard barbecue contest will take place. If a judge is needed, that’s what I’m here for! Register your team today and save the date.
Some of my favorite things are in one place. It’s Muhlenberg County’s biggest party of the year. It’s always a good time when you can pull the classic vehicle out of the garage for some fun in the sun. We’re ready to take our ’57 Chevy or Chevelle out for the Rods & Ribs BBQ Festival. I can’t wait to see all the trucks, muscle cars and hot rods of all shapes and sizes. I love the music of Whiskey Alibi. They always put on a fantastic show! I can’t wait to sample all the delicious barbecues and food from the food trucks that will be on site. Central City is a beautiful city, and I can’t wait to see my friends.
Rods & Ribs BBQ Fest
Save the date because it’s all happening at LuRay Park in Central City on Friday, July 29 and July 30, 2022. The festival kicks off Friday with food trucks, vendors and kitchen crews set up. On Saturday there will be live music from Whiskey Alibi from 5-7pm, vendors, food trucks, a beer garden, fun stuff for the kids and lots of delicious barbecues!
Rods & Ribs Jim Beam Garden BBQ Contest
An announcement was made earlier in the week that a fun barbecue contest has a new sponsor for the festival. I want to be the taste tester!
“Meeting with Distillery Rep Jim Beam and the Kentucky Kookers was a success today. Plans for the Rods & Ribs BBQ Festival – Jim Beam Backyard BBQ Competition are finalized.
The BBQ contest will be held inside the LuRay Park & Amphitheater and we are set to accommodate over 50 teams.
If you would like to enter the Rods & Ribs BBQ Contest on July 30, please contact Kenny, Randy or Bruse at the Grillin & Chillin BBQ Cook-Off!
It is a beautiful and secure place with water, electricity and toilets. Ice and other amenities will be available on site for convenience for our cooks.
SXS and golf carts can be used on city roads with the proper permits. These can be purchased on site from Thursday to Saturday of the Rods & Ribs weekend.”
