The 2014 edition of the Downtowners Rip Roarin' Ribfest kicked off Thursday in downtown Bismarck! If you've never been to Ribfest, we've put together a short little video for you to watch so you know what to expect when you get there.

This year, Ribfest has five national ribbers in attendance:

  • Rasta Joe's
  • Johnson's BBQ
  • Howlin' Coyote
  • Pork 'N' Beans
  • Uncle Bub's

Plus, there's a beer garden, VIP tent, soda tents, Games to Go Inflatables, and a chance for you to sign up to win a $1,000 grill, courtesy of Advantage Appliance!
