The Jazz & Rib Festival is deemed one of the best in the midwest for it’s amazing food and music. The fest offers three days of continuous jazz by local and international musicians as well as ribs, chicken and more whipped up by 23 award-winning barbeque teams. This free event begins Friday July 21st and runs until Sunday July 23rd at the Scioto River in Bicentennial, West Bank, and Genoa Parks. With promising weather, music and food, there isn’t a reason not to check it out! This year, over 40 performers will be gracing the stages and I’ve included the lineup below.
