Sunny Skies, Music and Lots of Ribs at Lake Shore Park This Weekend Crowds Expected at the 18th Annual Rib Burn-Off | Local News


TOWNSHIP OF ASHTABULA – The 18th annual Lake Shore Park Rib Burn-Off returns today and Sunday with live music, fireworks and plenty of barbecue ribs. The burn-off was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The festival begins at noon today and continues through Sunday with numerous national and local rib teams competing for prizes, including tastiest ribs, best sauce and people’s choice awards.

“We will have ribs and many other traditional Fair Trade dishes that will satisfy everyone’s taste buds,” said Peggy Davis, administrative assistant at the Ashtabula Township Park Commission. “If the weather forecast holds true, we expect throngs of people to come out and enjoy the food, music and beautiful sunsets at Lake Shore Park.”

Ashtabula Township Administrator Bambi Paulchel said the Rib Burn-Off is always a big hit.

Mother Nature is also expected to smile on the Burn-Off, with sunny skies and highs of around 75 degrees for both days.

A classic car show will be held from 4-8 p.m. on Sunday.

Several local bands have been booked to play at the event, including:

• Michelle Robinson Band — 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday;

• Country Redford — 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday;

• Ernest T Band — 1pm-4pm Sunday, and

• Good question — 5pm-8pm Sunday.
