Ribfest 4 Homes

Mmm, Mmm. There’s nothing like the smell of ribs cooking on the smoker. Makes your mouth water just thinking about it, doesn’t it? Well, come Saturday, August 16 from 1 till 5 PM, that’s just what happens on the grounds of The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection.

Competitive teams will be ‘smokin’ their best and serving up ribs to the public. These teams come from East Tennessee and North Georgia, all claiming to be the best rib cookers around. Some are competitors from the BBQ Circuit, some are from the best BBQ restaurants, and some are local “wildcards” looking to make a name for themselves. Rib Platter Ticket holders vote for the best tasting ribs --“Peoples’ Choice Award”.

Only 400 tickets are available for Rib Platter Tickets—this ticket entitles the holder to sample a rib from twelve of the teams (12 ribs equals a full rack), two sides, bread, and a drink. Other sides will be sold as well as deserts. The rib platter ticket is $25 in advance ($30 at the gate). Purchase on-line at Ribfest4Homes.com under Tickets and Purchases. General admission and parking are free. Hotdogs, hamburgers, and other treats may be purchased at the concessions tent and the Arts & Crafts area.

  Visit with the teams and enjoy the aromas. See if you can get them to share their secret recipes and cooking styles. Barbecue just goes so well with Bluegrass and gospel music that we’ve included live entertainment for our guests. Our grounds shady, with tents and fans on site for your comfort. Bring a folding chair if you like.

Families and children are encouraged to attend. We open our playground for play, as well as our Parish Hall and Church for tours. Guest crafters bring their wares to Arts & Crafts. Donations to Loudon County Habitat for Humanity are always welcome. We have already funded two Habitat Houses, and are working on the third.
