.38 Special - Northwest Ohio Rib-Off

The Blade’s 33rd Annual Northwest Ohio Rib Off presented by Taylor Automotive Family will take place this summer from August 18 to 21 at the Lucas County Fairgrounds in Maumee, Ohio.

Rock group .38 Special will take the stage on Saturday, August 20. Their southern rock sound blending perfectly with the scent of barbeque, they will perform such hits as “Hold On Loosely,” “Caught Up In You,” “If I’d Been The One,” and “Back Where You Belong.”

As always, plenty of barbeque will be available from pitmasters right here in Toledo and from as far away as Texas. The event is a part of the National Barbecue Cookers Association. All NBCA members are certified Food Safety Professionals.

Tickets to the Northwest Ohio Rib Off will be available beginning May 1, 2016 at
