Marc's Great American Rib Cook-Off and Music Festival

Memorial Day weekend has arrived, which means summer festival season is officially here! To kick off the start of summer, Fox 8 Cleveland and sponsors will host the 22nd annual Marc's Great American Rib Cook-Off and Music Festival.

This four-day grilling and music event at Jacob's Pavilion at Nautica has become Northeast Ohio's biggest and most popular backyard BBQ. Ten grilling teams from across the nation will join together at the festival to face off against one another and compete to be declared the best ribs in America. An amateur grilling competition will also take place on Saturday, in which six competitors will attempt to make their tastiest ribs and have them judged by a panel of grill masters.

Besides the food, the festival will have two stages set up with live musical performances throughout the weekend. This year's line-up includes Mega 80's, Rick Springfield, Buddy Guy and Bret Michaels.

General admission tickets cost $5 with a coupon from any Marc's Northeast Ohio store or online. Tickets will be sold at the Rib Cook-Off box office for $8. Kids 12 and under are free. The live concerts are free with a general admission ticket.

Parking is available at surrounding lots on the West and East Bank of the Flats. The RTA will be offering "Rib Lovers" free rides on all RTA Rapid Transit Rail Lines for the duration of the festival.

Friday, May 24 from noon-11 p.m.
Saturday, May 25 from noon-11 p.m.
