Judges for Ribfest 2023

This is how it works: 5 Ribbers submit samples of ribs and sauce to our 2023 judges, who then pick their 'best'. Our judging host Rotarian, Marty Douglas, tallies the results and advises host of the trophy presentation. And finally, trophies are announced in Rib & Sauce categories.

Next comes the People’s Choice Trophy – awarded to the Ribber that gets the most votes from people attending Ribfest and voting with tokens when they exit the park. The People’s Choice is the most coveted award at Ribfest.
