1 week. Connecticut chefs + mixologists. Dishes + Drinks inspired by Barbeque. 50% proceeds go to Charity: Journey Home, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, and The Hartford Rib Off Scholarship Fund.
Dear Industry friends, The Hartford Rib Off, Hartford’s largest Charity BBQ event of the year, has officially announced that the Hartford Rib Off is changing to a new date and a new format for 2020, to raise funds for the community while also supporting the hard hit hospitality industry.
COVID-19 has put a hold on large-scale public gatherings in 2020, leaving many non-profit events, like the Hartford Rib Off, without a means to raise funds.
From Monday, October 19th to Sunday, October 25th, Connecticut chefs, bartenders, BBQ PitMasters, and restaurateurs from all over greater Hartford will come together to serve dishes and drinks inspired by anything BBQ, with 50% of the proceeds from those dishes or drinks going to the Hartford Rib Off charities.
The 2020 Hartford Rib Off beneficiaries are: Journey Home, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, and The Hartford Rib Off Scholarship Fund.
