Marketing and Communications Toolkit

We are thrilled to have your restaurant on board to participate in the 2021 Jazz & Rib Fest BBQ Week, a creative, safe variation of the city’s favorite summer staple: Jazz & Rib Fest. BBQ Week provides central Ohioans with the tradition of sampling the region’s best, sweet, savory barbecue is an endeavor we are proud of, and we are excited to share that excitement with the community.

We have created a Jazz & Rib Fest BBQ Week Communications and Marketing Toolkit to give you all the resources needed, in a turn-key fashion, to easily share an announcement of your involvement in BBQ Week.

It’s going to be a great week to celebrate all things saucy, grilled, smoked and fire-roasted!
