Capital City Ribfest 2008

I dare you to think of something more fundamentally pleasing than four days dedicated to smeared-on-your-face ribs and live music. You can't, can you! Thankfully the Pershing Center will be hosting this year's Capital City Ribfest, so you can appease your most instinctual of desires--meat on a bone.

From August 7 to August 10, the Nebraska Pork Producers' Capital City Ribfest will feature award-winning BBQ chefs and pit bosses from around the country and all the delectable ribs you can handle! Not to mention non-stop live music throughout the event. Enjoy regional tastes from all over the world without all the hassle of lost baggage at the airport!
