Good Smoke Memorial Day Weekend Rochester, NY

If you are looking for something to do Memorial Day weekend, consider one of the area's premier foodie events happening just a stone's throw down the road from us in Western New York in the Rochester, NY neighborhood of Charlotte.

Ontario Beach Park (also known as Charlotte Beach to the locals), will host the Roc CIty Ribfest from Friday May 27th to Monday May 30th.  This contest will bring together the area's BBQ elite, as well as from Canada, New England and as far away as Virginia to compete in three separate contests over the four days of the event. Saturdays activities include the New England BBQ Society Grilling Competition as well as the Roc City Rib Cookoff with Sunday being reserved for the Kansas City BBQ Society BBQ Competition. BBQ teams will be competing for over $20,000 in prize money for all three contests.

Theis event now in it's fourth year, has raised over $24,000 for the Golisano Childrens Hospital at Strong Memorial Hospital and has recently added other charities such as the Ronald McDonald House to it's list of recipients. 

There will be plenty of competition action to follow as well as plenty of good BBQ eats available from area vendors and vendors from as far away as Florida. Plan to spend the better part of the day, and if the weather cooperates, take a stroll along the beach to work off what is sure to be some of the BEST barbecue this side of the Mississippi this Memorial Day weekend.
