See what you missed at Hendricks County Rib-Fest

Ribs and a performance from Jennie DeVoe — how could I turn down a visit to the Hendricks County Rib-Fest in Avon, Indiana. I love ribs and have been a fan of Jennie DeVoe for years. So, this event provided a great way for me and my family to kick off our 4th of July week. The Hendricks County Rib-Fest was in a new location this year. After seven years at the Washington Township Park in Avon, the festival moved to the grounds of Kingsway Christian Church to accommodate more vendors and visitors. Leading up to the Rib-Fest, I was concerned about the heat this year. But luckily it cooled down a little and ended up being a nice night. Usually fireworks wrap up the evening, but because of the dry conditions, they were canceled this year. Avon Chamber of Commerce hosts the Rib-Fest the Saturday before the 4th of July. If you missed the Hendricks County Rib-Fest, there are still many special events this week. For more information, check out my post about Hendricks County Independence Day events.
