Downtown London Rib And Jazz Fest: August 5 & 6, 2016
The London Rib and Jazz Fest brings the party to downtown London!
This highly anticipated, annual event brings LIVE music and that sweet smell of delicious, local barbecue to the streets of London, Ohio.
Originating in 2008 as a revitalization of London’s First Friday schedule, the 2013 Rib & Jazz Fest saw almost 10,000 people and every rib vendor sold out of the nearly 5,000 pounds of ribs! SInce then, the festival has only gotten bigger and better.
This year's event features six rib burners, more than 6,000 pounds of ribs, smoked fresh on the streets of Downtown London, a great line-up featuring headliners, The Sean Carney Band and Ray Fuller and the Blues Rockers and much more!
Bring the whole family! Admission is free and there are plenty of kids activities.
We look forward to seeing you in downtown London Ohio
Friday, August 5th and Saturday, August 6th from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m..
