Join us for a Week of BBQ to support The Hartford Rib Off and participating local restaurants
From Friday, October 19th to Saturday, October 25th, select Connecticut chefs, bartenders, BBQ Pit Masters, and restaurateurs from all over the greater Hartford area will serve up dishes and drinks inspired by anything BBQ, with 50% of the proceeds from those dishes or drinks going to The Hartford Rib Off Inc. The 2020 Hartford Rib Off beneficiaries include: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, Journey Home, and The Hartford Rib Off Scholarship Fund. What we love about the 2020 “Week of BBQ” is that it allows people to contribute to charity in a small way, by simply ordering a dish or a drink at one of their favorite participating restaurants. This also supports our restaurant industry friends in these very difficult times. Waiter Wheels and Dine-In Connecticut are donating $2.50 from each customer's order that includes the HRO BBQ inspired dish at their participating partner restaurants.
Through family friendly BBQ and community-building events, the Hartford Rib Off is committed to raising awareness and funding to support the various objectives of Greater Hartford nonprofit organizations. Over the past 10 years we have distributed $180,000.00 in proceeds from our event to 7 local charitable organizations. The Hartford Rib Off prides itself on promoting Hartford, and Riverside Park is one of Hartford’s greatest natural resources. By bringing 2000+ guests to the park, our event showcases Hartford in a unique and exciting way.
