Berea National Rib Cook-Off
Over the past 18 years, residents from all over Northeastern Ohio have come to the Cleveland suburb of Berea to enjoy the Memorial Day Weekend annual symbolic summer kick-off: Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off. The Cook-off has established itself as one of the premier events in the Cleveland area, and is accomplished through the tireless work of the Berea City Club, Inc. and local volunteers. The Berea City Club was founded in 1998 and have, since their inception, donated over a half-million dollars into the community. Projects either partially or fully funded and planned by the Berea City Club include: The Berea Clock Tower, Coe Lake Bridge, and Lou Groza Boulevard. With your help, the Berea City Club hopes to continue in its mission to improve the community… and all you really have to do to help is eat ribs (not a bad deal for you!). Memorial Day weekend will mark the festival’s 19th year out at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds. The exact dates to remember are May 26-29, 2017.
