Columbus Recreation and Parks Department Announces Participating Restaurants for Jazz & Rib Fest BBQ Week
Jazz & Rib Fest returns to riverfront in 2022

The city’s best grilled, smoked and spit-roasted foods are on the menu for the first Jazz & Rib Fest BBQ Week, July 19-25, a week-long celebration of all things BBQ!

Jazz & Rib Fest BBQ Week was created to encourage Columbus residents to visit BBQ restaurants during the week when the city’s annual Jazz & Rib Fest would have been held. The 2021 Jazz & Rib Fest was canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions that were in place in early spring when festival planning takes place. BBQ Week is expected to continue as a “warm-up” to the Jazz & Rib Fest next year and beyond.

“Columbus was recently named 6th in the U.S. for Best BBQ from Chef’s Pencil, and while rib vendors may not be along the riverfront for Jazz & Rib Fest this summer, there are many restaurants and food trucks participating in BBQ Week to visit–and the list of participating venues continues to grow,” said Mayor Andrew Ginther. “We are excited to celebrate a week of BBQ in Columbus, and to support local restaurants who were affected by the pandemic.”

3 Flame BBQ
