LINCOLN, NE – The long-loved, famous Nebraska Ribfest is set to return to Lincoln after a 2-year hiatus. New this year, it will
occur at the Lancaster Event Center (LEC) Fairgrounds August 5–7 2021 as part of the Lancaster County Super
Fair’s ten-day 150th anniversary, July 29–August 7.
The LEC Fairgrounds team has partnered with Nebraska Pork Producers Association to bring Nebraska
Ribfest back to the community. Nationally recognized BBQ vendors will be competing August 5–7 to show off
their best delicacies, with the champion awarded on the afternoon of Saturday, August 7. Live local bands will
be showcased nightly, with a DJ host every afternoon. Full list of participating BBQ vendors will be available
June 1 at SuperFair.org.
“The Nebraska Pork Producers Association is beyond excited to see the return of a Ribfest to Lincoln. We are
always thrilled when opportunities arise for consumers to enjoy the high-quality pork we are so proud to
produce!” said Nebraska Pork Producers Association President Shana Beattie, “We look forward to supporting
the Lancaster County Super Fair with their effort to revive this fan-favorite event.”
Also new this year, admission to Nebraska Ribfest will be completely free beyond the normal fair gate fees.
Free fair gate admission tickets will be available at U-Stop Lincoln locations from June 1–Aug 7, while supplies
last. Other fair gate ticket sponsor locations will be shared on SuperFair.org as they become available.
Otherwise, fair gate admission is $3/person/entry. Parking is $5/vehicle.
BBQ vendors will be serving the public on Thursday, August 5 from 5-11pm and Fri-Sat Aug 6–7 from 1-11pm
in the Attraction Zone on the north side of the fairgrounds. Full-service liquor bar and ample seating will be
available in the adjacent beer garden and shade tent.
