Thousands of visitors make their way to Victorian Square in Sparks each Labor Day Weekend to experience the biggest and most prestigious rib cook-off in the United States. The country's favorite free rib festival is back for its 24th year!

The event runs from Wednesday through Monday and is the perfect way to say goodbye to summer. Delight in finger-licking ribs with the country's best cooks, shop hundreds of craft and vendor booths and enjoy free entertainment, including nightly headline acts on the Main Concert Stage. All food booths will be open from 11:00am-9:00pm on Wednesday-Sunday, and from 11:00am-5:00pm on Monday. Food and concessions will be available during event hours only. There is also a Kids Area that is open daily.

The best way to enjoy the Labor Day holiday weekend is on Victorian Square in downtown Sparks; this is a must-attend culinary, music, craft and family end-of-the summer affair!
