Nebraska Ribfest Returns to Lincoln This August

The Nebraska Pork Producers Association is beyond excited to see the return of a Ribfest to Lincoln!

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

“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.
