It seems like only yesterday we held the first RibFest in the parking lot across the street from the Arcadia Creek Festival site.  Back then, in the early 90s it was a much more shall we say "intimate" affair with a few national vendors and a celebrity rib sauce competition which I finished second in one year.  That was then and this is now or should I say WOW?  It's the biggest festival of the year and has been for many years.

This year The Rocker and FireKeepers Casino Hotel are giving you the chance to win the Ultimate RibFest VIP Experience.  We're talking 2 VIP packages that include tickets for all 3 days, the best seats in the house, $250 in RibBucks & drink tickets, judges at the Best Ribs In Kalamazoo competition and, of course, use of the Luxury VIP bathrooms; that alone makes it the Ultimate Experience.  Trust me.

Starting Monday 7/9, listen for the RibFest Code Words in the 7a, noon and 4p hours and then plug them in at wrkr.com.  Good luck and we'll see you at RibFest August 2nd, 3rd and 4th at Arcadia Creek Festival Place downtown Kalamazoo.
