From Capital City Ribfest Website:

Mark your calendar for August 14-17, 2014. Ribfest will be held at the Festival Space parking lot north of Pinnacle Bank Arena.

The Nebraska Pork Producers' Capital City Ribfest is Lincoln's favorite, and longest running summer festival featuring award-winning BBQ and music.

Food, showcasing great barbeque, plus live music on the Ribfest Sound Stage featuring some of the best local and regional talent, highlight the four-day event.

Award-winning BBQ pit bosses from around the country gather to showcase their talents and serve up award-winning barbeque to southeastern Nebraskans. This festival is unique to Lincoln in that barbeque is the focal point of the event - offering the public a chance to sample a variety of barbeque recipes from across the nation and even Australia.

BBQ fans can now taste Southern, Texas style, Australian, Memphis and Southwestern BBQ, all without leaving Lincoln!

Festival entertainment including live folk, classic rock, blues and country music is featured throughout the 4 day event.

Ribfest generated multiple barrels of donated food for The Food Bank of Lincoln. The public donated cans of food on Thursday and Friday during the lunch hour as an admission donation. Thanks to all who contributed.

SMG and the Nebraska Pork Producers Association will host the 18th annual big event on August 14 - 17, 2014 at the new Festival Space parking lot north of Pinnacle Bank Arena.
