About Madison Ribberfest BBQ & Blues

Nine great blues performers rock the stage non-stop at this 2 day event. Fifty professional barbeque teams from around the country compete in the Indiana State Championship Barbeque Cook-Off for cash/prizes and a chance to represent Indiana at the Kansas City Barbeque Society’s (KCBS) world championship. On Friday, there’s a Backyard BBQ Blast cooking competition for amateurs and a Kidz-Q for the youngsters on Saturday. Riverboat cruises on the Queen City paddle wheeler, a 5K RibberRun/Ride, the Pig Toss Corn Hole Tournament and the “Piglet Pen” children’s play area, round out the offerings for a great family weekend.
