Best in the West Rib Cook-Off Ready to Take on 2019


The 2019 Rib Cook-Off

For 30 years, the Nugget's annual Rib Cook-Off has been Northern Nevada’s favorite way to finish off the summer. Starting on August 28th through September 2nd, all rib lovers join together for the "Best BBQ Festival" named by USA Today (2016).

The Rib Cook-Off brings together 23 of the best chefs from all around the country. The cooks serve 250,000 lbs of mouth-watering ribs through the weekend, so make sure to come hungry! 

As Victorian Square transforms into an exciting cook-off, there will also be a Beer Garden, Kids Carnival, arts and crafts vendors, VIP Area, and live entertainment every night. Bring the whole family to enjoy all the activities and celebrate Labor Day weekend at this admission-free and public event.

Free shuttle services are offered through the weekend to help event-goers avoid the crowds around Victorian Square. The hassle-free shuttle services and parking information can be found here. There is also an event map that details the location of all the stations, activities, and rib cookers. 

Come out and enjoy the Best Cook-Off in the West that is located right in our backyard.
