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 10, 2018 and it just keeps getting bigger and better than ever. This year's free concert headliner is chart topping country artist Craig Morgan with hits "International Harvester," "What I love about Sunday" and "Redneck Yacht Club."

The event kicks off with a fundraising breakfast for the local Boy Scouts served on Main Street from 8-10 a.m. The Street Fair opens at 10 a.m. with lunch being served at 11 a.m. and rib teams cooking up ribs on the street all day, serving them to the public at 6 p.m.

And as always, the Best of the West Ribest, Street Fair and Classic Car Show is free and open to the public, with team games, ping pong ball drops offering out Chamber deals, a kids inflatables and game zone, facepainting and more fun throughout the day. 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. Local country artist Lexi Wyman will perform at noon and The Cody Charles Band will kick off the evening concert at 6 p.m., followed by Craig Morgan at 8 p.m. and a party after dark with chart topping rock band Wayland.

"We're so excited to be able to bring such big acts to Main Street this year," said Mary Gumke with the Watford City Chamber. "We are thankful to our chamber members and sponsors for making this event bigger and better each year and for allowing us to offer these high quality concerts for free to our community."
