Barbecue beat-down

. July 30, 2013.

The ribmeisters have been tweaking their recipes for the 19th annual Rib Off on Broadway, Findlay’s annual barbecue beat-down to determine the best BBQ in Flag City.
This year’s event begins at 3pm August 3 and brings together up to eight vendors who compete for barbecue bragging rights including “Judge’s Choice” and “Best Sauce.” A people’s choice award will let attendees judge for themselves based on sampling ribs from at least three vendors and submitting a ballot up until 10pm. The Rib-Off, sponsored by The Arts Partnership and Hancock Federal Credit Union, will also play host to its first Battle of the Bands followed by classic rock from Funk Factory.

Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children 12 and under, and free for children in strollers. The event will be held in downtown Findlay, around Broadway behind the Findlay Hancock County Public Library. Proceeds from the Rib-Off support programs and events offered by The Arts Partnership. The Rib-Off is being held in conjunction with another event, Car Tunes on Main, which features car shows and other family activities downtown from 3pm to 11pm.
