The Rib Cook-Off returns to Victorian Square outside the Nugget Casino Resort beginning August 31, 2022. The six day festival features 20+ of the country’s best high volume rib cookers squaring off for the highly coveted title of Best In The West.

In addition to the best rib cookers anywhere, there will be a kids’ activity area, a massive line up of craft and merchant vendors and a spectacular line-up of FREE entertainment! It’s the best end-of-summer party in the west and we hope to see you here!
