A Party with a Purpose

You spoke and we’re listening. We are changing the format of the event and negotiating with venues to bring you a new and improved Gulf Coast Rhythm & Ribs Music Fest. Therefore, we have decided not to host an event this year in order to plan appropriately and solicit additional sponsorships. We will have an even better festival in Spring 2019.
