The "6th annual B Street Rib Off" will take place Saturday

Posted: Updated:

The "6th annual B Street Rib Off" will take place on Saturday, October 19, at MacArthur Park in Little Rock.

This year's event will feature a BBQ cooking competition that includes ribs, chicken and side dishes. All proceeds from the B Street Rib Off will benefit the Arkansas chapter of the American Cancer Society.

The early registration deadline has already passed, however teams may enter up to the night before the event. Side dish competitors will register on the day of the competition for $10.

The public is invited to judge the side dish competition for a $5 donation.  

The B Street Rib Off was founded in 2008 by Jason Brown, Justin Hinton and Matthew Ross as a friendly competition to establish the best rib cook in the group. The founders turned the annual event into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
