Fun, Food, and Fundraising are back in Hartford in 2021! Join us at The Hartford Rib Off on October 15 and 16 for Hartford's best BBQ Event.
This all-day, family-friendly event is a favorite for everyone. Featuring a Kansas City Barbecue Society contest that draws pit crews from all over the country, The Hartford Rib Off is a celebration of food and fun, all to benefit local charities! Enjoy amazing BBQ, unlimited beer, cocktails, live music, activities for the kids, raffles, and more.
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 11 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.
