Madison BBQ fest to move to a one-day event

Madison, IN—Madison Ribberfest BBQ & Blues, known as one of Indiana’s ‘Best Music Festivals’, and an official Indiana State BBQ Championship is now among the many events in the world affected by COVID-19.

Madison Ribberfest will be taking a new approach for this year’s festival. The Ribberfest committee is moving forward with the planning, and what is typically a two-day event will be reduced to one day, planned for Saturday, August 22nd, 2020. Dave Butler, Ribberfest Committee member since its inception in 2002 added, “We have been really excited about the show we put together for this year, so to say we are disappointed would be an understatement. However, we are already working hard to develop a one-day festival full of great blues music, food, and camaraderie.

More information will become available for this event as the committee plans. Chairpersons for the different aspects of the festival will be reaching out to stakeholders to discuss this year’s event.
