2016 marks the 12th annual Twin City RibFest.  Twin City Ribfest is a food festival and take great pleasure in promoting NC-based food and beverage products like Texas Pete hot sauce, Foothills beer and Cheerwine and continues to thrive with its simplistic combination of national BBQ purveyors competing for awards and customers, and quality entertainment on its music stages.

Musical acts over the years have included local, regional and national acts including the Avett Brothers, Vanilla Ice, Cyrille Neville, Hal Ketchum and many more.  The Twin City RibFest now partners with the Winston-Salem Journal to relocate the event to the Winston-Salem Journal’s corporate parking lots on the corner of West Fifth Street and North Marshall Street.

The 2016 RibFest also will feature several rib cookers (ribbers) from all over the country as well as featuring over 20 musical acts will fill up three performance stages.
