New England Ribfest Coming To Bangor
Get ready, Bangor! The 1st annual New England Ribfest is coming to Bass Park Friday, Sept. 15 and Saturday, Sept. 16.
Award winning rib masters from all over the United States will roll into to Bangor to compete for awards and big cash prizes. These rib masters are nationally renowned for their unique flavor combinations and special BBQ techniques. You may have even seen some of them on the Food Network.
They’ll bring some of the most amazing BBQ you’ll ever taste – succulent ribs that just fall off the bone, pulled pork, juicy brisket, BBQ chicken, sausages, Australian BBQ shrimp, mouthwatering sauces and all the fixin’s, plus unexpected treats like BBQ nachos, candied bacon and more. In addition to competing, their delicious food will be available for purchase all day!
Music is a big part of the New England Ribfest experience. Both days will be packed with amazing live performances from local, regional and national talent. Friday will be filled with classic rock favorites, featuring Canadian classic rock legends, LOVERBOY, while Saturday will turn country with country star TERRI CLARK, it wouldn’t be a real country party without our good friend, Rowdy Yates, host of Original Country Gold Saturday Night. He’ll join the party Saturday evening.
New England Ribfest will be held on the Bass Park infield – the grassy section inside the racetrack – from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. both days. With some of the best BBQ you’ve ever tasted amazing music, frosty alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, games and more, New England Ribfest is one event you can’t miss – so grab your lawn chairs, gather up your friends and family and make it a fun-filled weekend for everyone!
