New England Ribfest returns to Bass Park in Bangor Friday, September 7th & Saturday, September 8th, 2018, from 11am-10pm both days!

Award winning pit masters from all over the United States will roll into to Bangor, dishing up some of the most amazing BBQ you’ve ever tasted. These rib masters are nationally renowned for their unique flavor combinations and special BBQ techniques.

You’ll find all your BBQ favorites at New England Ribfest - succulent ribs that fall off the bone, pulled pork, juicy brisket, BBQ chicken, sausages, mouthwatering sauces and all the fixin's, plus unexpected treats like BBQ nachos, candied bacon and more. In addition to competing for awards, 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, featuring classic rock icons, NIGHT RANGER. Saturday will be the country party of the year with live bands all day, headlined by country legend, JOE DIFFIE. And our good friend, Rowdy Yates, from Original Country Gold Saturday Night will host the party on Saturday!

New England Ribfest will be held on the Bass Park infield - the grassy section inside the racetrack - from 11am -10pm both days. With world class BBQ, legendary 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!
