Rib Fest 2022 has been canceled. Due to the toll Covid and the current economy has taken on our local businesses and restaurants (so many are short-staffed) and the changes we would have to make to Rib Fest to host a safe event, the Neighbor to Neighbor Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel Rib Fest again in 2022. Our organization encourages people to support the local businesses and restaurants and please be patient if they are short-staffed. The event will be back! Rib Fest 2023 is scheduled for Saturday, November 4, 2023. The event will be held at The Lodge at Leathem Smith. Mark your calendar for this date. We hope you will join us in 2023.
