Rib Burn-off and Chili Cook-off returns to Conneaut Township Park

CONNEAUT — The fourth annual Rib Burn-off and Chili Cook-off comes to Conneaut’s Township Park on Sept. 13-15.

The event, sponsored by the Conneaut Human Resources Center, features at least five professional rib cookers: Cunningham’s, Breakwall BBQ, Briquette’s Smokehouse, B&M Barbecue and Kay’s Place.

Briquette’s will be defending its title as People’s Choice and Best Chili. Kay’s Place finished second in the rib category last year, while B&M Barbecue was voted Best Sauce 2012.

In addition to ribs and all the side dishes, vendors will also be selling kettle corn, root beer floats, ice cream, funnel cakes, fried dough and milkshakes. Judging will take place at 4 p.m. Sept. 15, and making the tough decisions will be the Rev. Frank Gore of Conneaut’s Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Nicholas Iarocci and State Rep. John Patterson, D-Jefferson.

Festival hours are 4-10 p.m. Sept. 13, noon-10 p.m. Sept. 14 and 1-8 p.m. Sept. 15.

Entertainment for the weekend includes musicians and crafters. The musical lineup features:
