    Rib America Festival: Des Moines

    Rib America Festivals | Award Winning BBQ, Music & More!

    Anyone going this weekend? I've never been but I'm thinking of going...what can I expect?

    There is a very good lineup of music, that alone should make it worth it.

    The music is great, but be ready to pay too much for BBQ and beer. It is a good time, but expensive time.

    May be worth it just to see Buddy Guy on Saturday night.

    Yeah. Went last year and really enjoyed the music. The drink/food prices are a bit steep but maybe that helps pay for the entertainment?

    Re: Rib America Festival: Des Moines

    There have been a couple threads about this. Don't go hungry. The food is nothing special, it's ridiculously expensive, and you have to buy tickets to get it. If you think of it as a food festival, you'll be disappointed. If you think of it as concert with a large concession area you'll be okay.
