Rhythm and Ribs Festival

Published: August 30, 2014

Rhythm and Ribs has been voted St. Augustine’s best festival 10 times in the past 13 years. On the weekend of April 4-6 Rhythm and Ribs will be returning to Francis Field in downtown St. Augustine. This festival will feature 7 of the nation’s top BBQ champions serving mouth watering BBQ slow cooked to perfection. This year’s festival will be the 19th annual Rhythm and Ribs hosted by St. Augustine Sunshine Rotary Club. Historically this event draws over 35,000 visitors in just 3 days. In addition to world class BBQ, the festival will also feature (continuous) live music, arts and crafts vendors, as well as rides and games for the kids. Friday night, don’t miss your chance to help crown “The peoples choice” best BBQ of the year. Also performing on Friday night is St. Augustine’s very own, Red River Band. These 4 musicians provide a high energy country music performance that you won’t want to miss. For a full list of musicians, artists, sponsors, and BBQ vendors please visit
