The City of Lowell along with the New England Barbecue Society is gearing up for 2007 Rib'n Brews Festival - are YOU ready?!? The City kicks off this two day Kansas City-style barbecue competition on Friday, September 7th at 6:00pm on the Tsongas Arena grounds.

This event also includes a microbrew challenge, food sampling and sale, and live entertainment from some of Boston's top bands. Admission is $5 (children under 12 are admitted free).

Patrons can watch the barbecue competition unfold as chefs baste, season and grill their way to the State title on every type of barbecue equipment imaginable including huge trailer-mounted barbecue pits, kettle grills and water smokers. The winners of the contest will receive a proclamation from the Massachusetts Governor as the State’s Best Barbecue Cooker as well as invitations to two national competitions.

Saturday, September 8th, 12:00pm -12:00am

    I went to this last year and it was SUCH a blast! I want to go again. Is anybody going on Saturday? That's when I can/want to go. Let me know who else is going Saturday and let's make some plans, yo!

    Glad to be back!

    What is it with Buzzard's Bay that they want to spoil their good name by serving Stella Artois?

    I wish I could join all of you for spare ribs and beer [ah, Lowell, how I miss thee].

    My soul was made to be soothed by barbecue, beer and, dare I say it, the soft caress of women.

    Rooting for you, guys!
