ABOUT JAZZ & RIB FEST BBQ WEEK

Columbus Recreation and Parks Department is thrilled to announce the first-ever Jazz & Rib Fest BBQ Week, a week-long celebration of all things barbecue!

For the health and safety of our attendees, artists, vendors and sponsors Jazz & Rib Fest has been canceled this year. However, in the spirit of the festival and supporting our local community, we’re pleased to present Jazz & Rib Fest BBQ Week, July 19-25, 2021, featuring restaurants, food trucks and other local food establishments throughout central Ohio! Looking ahead to 2022 and beyond, BBQ Week will be held in the week leading up to and culminating with the annual Jazz & Rib Fest in Downtown Columbus.

WHEN IS BBQ WEEK?

Monday, July 19 – Sunday, July 25, 2021.

WHAT ARE BBQ WEEK VENUES OFFERING?

Restaurants, food trucks and other local food establishments will be providing barbecue-inspired specials including limited-time menu items and specialty offerings. This can mean anything from Southern style barbecue, Jamaican jerk chicken, Hawaiian barbecue pizza, Korean barbecue to vegan barbecue jackfruit tacos!
