Strongsville City Club Rib Burnoff

Now in its 27th year, the Rib Burnoff will return to Strongsville tomorrow and will last into the weekend.

Although not the biggest rib burnoff in Northeast Ohio, the event usually draws around 20,000 visitors to Strongsville. About a dozen local rib vendors will cook up their best ribs to be entered into competitions and sampled by hungry visitors. Judges from the Culinary Institute will name winners for "Best Ribs," "Best Sauce" and "People's Choice" Saturday night.

The festival is geared toward carnivores, but vegetarians will be able to enjoy some of the food as well. Grilled vegetables, sweet potato fries, roasted corn, bloomin' onions, pierogies, funnel cakes and chocolate covered strawberries will all be sold throughout the weekend.

Besides food, the event also boasts musical acts. Midnight Groove will take the stage Thursday night, while Funkology will perform Friday evening. Saturday's line-up features Victor Samalot, the Olmsted Performing Arts Dance Company and Dr. Mo with Monica Robins.

Tickets for adults are $2 each. Kids 10 and under and all active members of the Armed Services are free. All visitors can receive free admission on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Strongsville City Club.

The rib burnoff takes place on the Strongsville Commons located at the corner of State Route 82/Royalton Road and State Route 42/Pearl Road.

Strongsville City Club Rib Burnoff hours:
Thursday, June 20 from 4-11 p.m.
Friday, June 21 from 3-11 p.m.
