Get ready Kalamazoo! Ribfest is coming back and it's gonna be a big one. Prepare your appetites for some of the best ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and all the BBQ sides you can handle from tons of vendors from the area and across the country. Get pumped up for some major headlining artists along with some up and coming talent in the state.

This year, we're gonna be shaking things up a bit and giving those of you who have our free station app the first, and possibly only chance, to get their hands on VIP tickets to this year's event as a "V-App-P" member. So if you have not yet downloaded it, do it now so you don't miss out on this years VIP experience. Along with General Admission tickets, volunteer sign ups will also launch on May 1st as well, which will get you a free Ribfest shirt and into Ribfest for free that day. Last year, Lita Ford, Survivor, Hairmania, Breakfast Club, Jake Simmons & The Little Ghosts, and Megan Dooley all rocked the stage. Find out who will be headlining the stage, and how to get first dibs on VIP tickets when we announce Kalamazoo's Ribfest 2019 lineup on May 1st.
