The Hartford Rib Off
The Hartford Rib Off started in a Hartford backyard in 2009 as a BBQ with Family and Friends. After hosting it for a second time, in 2010, founder, Guy Neumann, decided to dedicate his time to raise awareness and money for different causes by holding this event once a year. From a few dozen friends to now upwards of 2,000 attendees, The Hartford Rib Off Has grown into the premier charity BBQ event in Hartford, now a KCBS and SCA contest.
This all-day, family-friendly event is a favorite for everyone. Featuring a Kansas City Barbecue Society contest that draws pit crews from all over the country, The Hartford Rib Off is a celebration of food and fun, all to benefit local charities! Enjoy amazing BBQ, unlimited beer, cocktails, live music, activities for the kids, raffles, and more.
