Awake the Lakes

Kid eating ribsJoin us for RibFest on Saturday June 25th, 2016 in Alexandria at Big Ole Park! Enjoy great food, Live Music, a Beer Garden and even Fire Works!

We will have a Vendor area again this year. If you are interested in participating this year, let us know and get the registration form for Crafters and Home Based Business Vendors here.

Have you thought about entering a rib cooking contest but are unsure of how to do it? Or don't have the capacity to cook a ton of ribs? Then listen up....we have started a '"Newbie" Division at Ribfest. We ask that you cook a 1 box of ribs (about 8 racks of ribs). During Ribfest you can chat with the seasoned cookers and maybe leave with a tip or two on the ins and out of cooking ribs. So grab your grill, your friends, or your friends grill, and see you at Ribfest! We are limiting this division to the first 6 paid registrants. The fee to enter in this division is $30.For more information please message us. Be sure to share this post! Thanks!
