For the health and safety of our attendees, artists, vendors and sponsors, the 2021 Jazz & Rib Fest has been canceled.

Produced by the City of Columbus Recreation and Parks Department, Jazz & Rib Fest is a highly anticipated summertime tradition offering both jazz and rib connoisseurs the finest in music and barbecue. Jazz & Rib Fest will return to the downtown Columbus riverfront July 22-24, 2022!

While Jazz & Rib Fest is on hiatus for 2021, we’re pleased to present Jazz & Rib Fest BBQ Week this summer as a way to celebrate great barbecue and support local businesses. This restaurant week style event, happening July 19-25, 2021, will feature local restaurants, food trucks and other dining establishments serving up barbecue inspired specials throughout central Ohio in a week-long celebration of all things barbecue! Looking ahead to 2022 and beyond, BBQ Week will be held the week leading up to and culminating in the annual Jazz & Rib Fest.
