Thursday, Sept. 12-Sunday, Sept. 15
You can bet there will be plenty of napkins on hand outside of the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver Ave., as Tulsa sees its fourth Rock ‘n Rib Festival. The festival – Thursday, Sept. 12-Sunday, Sept. 15 – becomes the center of the grillin’ universe for this four-day barbecue challenge presented by Rib Crib. Get your appetite ready for delicious, sauce-drenched fixings from six award-winning pit masters competing for the Rock ‘n Rib top title. Organizers have made this year’s festival even more special. In addition to food and live music, Friday includes the inaugural Rib Run, a 5k run and walk event at 7 p.m. that finishes with fireworks. Take a different route to the BOK Center on Saturday between 11 a.m.-9 p.m. for Chalkfest on Boston Avenue between Fifth and Sixth streets. Don’t worry about chalk – organizers will have plenty to decorate the Deco District. Want more? Check out Rock ‘n Rib’s party saloon, culinary stage and kids zone. Best of all, admission is free.
