Parking: We will be charging $5(cash) per carload at all lots. This is a Hendricks County Rib-Fest charge, and is not a charge inflicted by Kingsway Christian Church or Avon Community Schools. Other than food/drinks, the rest of the night is FREE! Please note that we will fill the Kingsway Christian Church parking lot first. We will then open the Sycamore Elementary lot, and once full, will open the Avon Middle School North Lot. We will have several shuttles running a continuous loop to bring people back to the event. Please look for the shuttle stop signs marked. Signs will be posted at the entrances of neighborhoods near the event that NO PARKING is allowed. Rib-Fest parking is also prohibited at Countryside Meadows.

Traffic: In order to best handle the exiting Rib-Fest crowd, the town/police will be closing the roundabout at Dan Jones and 100N in this manner: Westbound 100N will be closed to traffic, and southbound Dan Jones will be closed to traffic. Closures are only until the crowd has dispersed.

Credit Cards: We will have 2 credit card only lines this year and are accepting Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. Please check out the vendor menus below to have an idea of pricing.

History of the Hendricks County Rib-Fest
The Avon Chamber of Commerce sponsored the first Hendricks County Rib-Fest on July 2, 2005 at the Washington Township Park in Avon. The event was a huge success!

Rib-Fest has become an annual tradition and features live entertainment, games for kids, lots of food, and fireworks! Local restaurants compete for bragging rights of "best ribs" & "best sauce" as judged by the local tasters. Hendricks County Rib Fest is always held the Saturday before the Independence Day so mark your calendars in advance!

We look forward to making this event more exciting with each year!
