Every year since 2005, thousands of BBQ fans come out for the good food and fun. Daring to promote a whole ‘nother type of ‘cue; something beyond Lexington style BBQ, promoter Allen McDavid launched the first RibFest with Shiner Bock beer as the title sponsor. “Where is it written that pork barbecue has to be chopped or shredded,” McDavid asked. “There is more to the pig than shoulders and butts.” The success of the Twin City RibFest was immediate and helped it gain recognition in Bon Apetit magazine, Martha, USA Today and Our State magazine, as well as being named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Bureau several years running.
