Rib it Up

The Jazz and Rib Fest is known as the summer’s prime food and entertainment festival and has held that title for the past 30 years. Building on the record-setting crowd attendance last year, the fest will return July 23-25 to the Arena District and North Bank Park areas and will serve up plenty of hot, sticky ribs and cool, soothing jazz. While admission is free, the ribs are not. Check it out Friday-Saturday 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
