Heading into its 9th year, the Roachdale Rib & Blues Fest, hosted by the Roachdale Revitalization Cooperative Alliance highlights the historic downtown and laid-back atmosphere of Roachdale, IN. A town of roughly 900, all of whom you can meet at the event, creates a welcoming and fun environment to enjoy incredible music in a fog of sweet-smelling BBQ smoke. Wash down your lunch with a drink from the beer garden or regional winery and you’re well on your way to a great day.
The smoke starts rolling early in the morning as the pitmasters begin preparation for the BBQ competition announced in the afternoon. Guests are welcome free of charge and the music starts just after lunchtime around 2:00 p.m. Headlining this year is Jennie Devoe, alongside local bands, The Fret Set, Black Market Vinyl, and Mona & the Hitchhikers.
