Ribfest 2017 Set For Aug. 11 in Watford City


Little Texas

One of the biggest events in Western North Dakota takes place on Main Street Watford City. The Best of the West Ribfest, Street Fair and Classic Car show is set for August 11, 2017 and it just keeps getting bigger and better than ever with three-time Grammy nominated country act, Little Texas headlining the free concert on Main Street.

The event kicks off with a fundraising breakfast for the local Boy Scouts served on Main Street from 8-10 am. The Street Fair opens at 10 am with lunch being served at 11 and rib teams cooking up ribs on the street all day, serving them to the public at 5 pm.

And as always, the Best of the West Ribest, Street Fair and Classic Car Show is free and open to the public, with live music and fun throughout the day, but back again this year is the option for guests to purchase a VIP Ticket where they can enjoy drinks and ribs under the shade of a tent and also score the best seats in the house for the evening concert. Minneapolis based Johnny Cash Tribute Band, Church of Cash, will be opening for Little Texas.

"Ribfest is one of the most anticipated events of the year," said Mary Gumpke with the Watford City Chamber. "We want to make sure everyone has the date on their calendars and makes plans to participate, whether as a guest, VIP, sponsor or rib competitor. We can't wait to see you on Main Street in August!"

As the event grows bigger and gains more state-wide attention each year, team spaces and vendor slots fill up quickly. Teams that register on or before June 1st will receive a discount, so get your team signed up today at http://www.watfordcityribfest.net.
