For the second year, The Great Midwest Rib Fest pleases lovers of ribs, music and art

More than 30,000 people attended The Great Midwest Rib Fest, in its second year at Mystic Lake, in July. Award-winning ribs, art vendors, and free, live music lit up Mystic’s outdoor grounds during the three-day festival. Ten of the Midwest’s best rib cookers competed, and Aussom Aussie of Michigan took home the prize for the best ribs. Goff Public helped recruit the expert rib-judging panel and publicized the event with media spots such as this KARE-11 segment with Texas Outlaw BBQ.
