RIBFEST LOGO - 1-transparent.png

Nashwauk RibFest was started in 2018 to celebrate the Grand Opening of Nashwauk Market.  We were looking for a event for the community as well as something that would allow us to showcase what we are known for…. OUR MEAT!  After kicking around a lot of ideas one of our friends (who also happens to be into competitive rib cooking) suggested we try a rib contest, and the rest is history. (Thanks Wade!)  We offer a fun affordable contest.  All the cooks have to worry about is the taste.  Our judges are only judging on flavor not presentation which gives the novice a better chance to compete.  All are welcome to participate, we have everything from backyard grillers to caterers that participate.

The 2021 Nashwauk Market RibFest will take place on Aug. 21, 2021.  Contestants should sign up and reserve a spot before July 30, 2021.  All entry fee money will be paid out to the winners.  Entry fee is $50 before July 30, 2021 and $75 after July 30, 2021.
