Marc's Great American Rib Cook-off and Music Festival

Hello, readers! It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks with work and home projects, so I'm barely keeping up with blogging and personal emails. Whoops. But, I had a great weekend in Put-in-Bay with my parents and "R" this weekend, and the gorgeous weather helped me relax and dream of summer. I'm ready for the warm and sunny days in Cleveland! Bring it on.

This time of year brings us some great outdoor food and beverage events. I have a few on my calendar already, and today I'm bringing you the opportunity to attend a Memorial Day Weekend festival that would be a great outing for the family, or with friends.

The 23rd Annual Marc's Great American Rib Cook-off & Music Festival is taking place Friday, May 23rd through Monday, May 26th at Jacobs Pavilion and Nautica Entertainment Complex. This outdoor event brings together classic summer food, live entertainment, kids activities, and a great setting in The Flats.

If you're interested in the live music, check out the headliners:
- Saturday, May 24 at 9:15pm Joan Jett and The Blackhearts
- Sunday, May 25 at 9:15pm Taking Back Sunday
- Monday, May 26 at 6:15pm Blackberry Smoke

You can also watch professional grilling teams compete, cheer on the Marc's Amateur Grilling Competition, and feast on some mouthwatering barbecue. Me? I'm in it for the ribs and the outdoor excursion!

They are offering several discounts to make it a fun and budget-friendly event this year. Check out their website for more information on these deals.

Or, you can win a four-pack of tickets by commenting on this blog post. I have two to give away, so I will select two winners using random.org on Friday, May 16th. Just leave me a comment below, telling me what your favorite summer food is.

Disclosure: I was provided with three four-packs of tickets, one for myself and two to give away, in exchange for this blog post. All opinions stated are 100% my own.
