Kalamazoo Ribfest

July 22, 2017

Kalamazoo Ribfest

August 3-5

Arcadia Creek Festival Place in Downtown Kalamazoo


It’s Kalamazoo’s largest annual downtown festival featuring rib vendors from across the country as well as local favorites, with some new vendors added for 2017. The “Best Ribs in Kalamazoo” tent will kick off Thursday night where attendees can sample from all the local rib vendors to determine the winner who receives rights to a vendor booth space at next year’s event. National entertainment and local bands will take the stage as well, with headliners including Grand Funk Railroad and Rev Run from Run DMC. Advance tickets on sale now. Proceeds from the event benefit the Arc Community Advocates.


Not only will you find some of the best ribs in the world at Ribfest, but you’ll also get to enjoy music from more than 10 bands ranging from local artists to nationally touring legends!
