Smokin’ for The Link Rib Fest
Saturday, June 10, 2023 from 2-5pm

The “Rib Fest” (as it has become affectionately known) is The Link’s premier summer fundraising event. This event makes it possible to help stabilize children, families, and seniors in need.
For the eighth year, a dozen teams will make their way to the City Parking Lot to smoke and grill over 4,000 lbs. of ribs. And pies. So. Many. Delicious. Pies.

Two ticket options:
Tasting tickets are $25 (5 samples + 1 piece of pie)
VIP tickets are $100 (Rib Samples from each rib team + 2 pieces of pie + 2 beverages. It is designed for two people.)

Tickets are limited and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

A big thank you to the generosity and support of about 1,000 people supporting this event, making it the premier culinary + music event of the summer (in our not-so-humble opinion).

The Rib Fest supports The Link’s efforts to help people in need in Northern Kandiyohi County. The Link engages caring community members with the opportunity to make a difference through the Wildcat Backpack Program, The Link Food Pantry, a household goods exchange, a thrift store, and through our outreach program for people needing information and resources.
