The Great American RIBFEST is coming!!
Circle the dates of June 14-16 – Father’s Day Weekend – and join 20,000 of your friends and family at the all-new Great American Ribfest!!
The cancellation of Nashua West Rotary’s Rock’n Ribfest after 16 years was a great loss to the community. To fill that void and continue to raise funds for local causes, the Merrimack Rotary Club has developed a brand-new event called the Great American Ribfest & Food Truck Festival. Taking place at the Budweiser Brewery in Merrimack NH, this outdoor festival will feature great food, great live music, great beer, and great kid’s activities – all to support local charities!
Check out our band schedule below. More information will be coming soon on our food vendors and other new features. Summer can’t arrive soon enough!
