Dillon’s Auto Ribfest – July 17, 2021, at Playmakers Bar & Grill

Five top bands from the area perform back-to-back all afternoon and evening!

Six of the best LOCAL barbecue vendors compete in a ribs competition to crown Best Ribs in Eastern Nebraska!

Buy a Rib Pass (good for six ribs + six mini sides) to try a rib from each vendor*, and vote on your favorite!

Meal deals, half racks, and full racks of ribs also available for purchase at the event.

Doors open 1:00.  Ribs 1:30-8:00*.  Concert 1:30-10:00.

Admission grants access to the five-band concert; ribs sold separately.

Tables and seats will be provided, but feel free to bring your own camping chair.

Tickets $12.  Rib Passes $20 (in advance); $25 (day of event). (A Rib Pass alone does not get you into the event; you’ll need to buy a ticket, too.  VIP tables include admission but not ribs.)

Tickets and rib passes available at Playmakers Bar & Grill or at

Presented by Dillon’s Auto, the Nebraska Barbecue Council, and Slick Ticket Promotions.

*While supplies last.  If fewer than six vendors have ribs available, then the Rib Pass holder may get a second rib from a vendor until six ribs have been received.
