Looking for some fun?

Our festival is all about old school fun for kids of all ages like pie eating contests, motorcycle choppers, KC style BBQ and jamming out to live music. For fifteen year’s our patrons have gathered in April to celebrate and are proud knowing they supported the Ozarks largest children’s charities.

There’s nothing quite like experiencing live entertainment, whether it’s a tent show with thousands of screaming fans, or the drama of an old fashion Texas Hold’em tournament. You’ll find numerous opportunities to take advantage of, both family friendly and adult, at Springfield’s premiere outdoor entertainment scene.

Start making your plans now to attend the 18th Annual Rock’n Ribs BBQ Festival on April 21st and 22nd, 2017.
