The Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off, now in its 22nd year, is quite simply one of the largest outdoor barbeque events on the planet. On September 1-6, the world’s 24 best BBQ cookers will serve more than 100 tons of ribs to a half-million people over six days. In addition, there are hundreds of craft booths, a kids carnival-ride area, and nightly A-list entertainment – this year including Asia, Jack Ingram and Gin Blossoms - all set on Victorian Square, a beautiful tree-lined plaza in downtown Sparks.

For additional details, including how to purchase your own VIP Rib Village tickets, please call (800) 648-1177 or visit

Contest Ends August 27, 2010.
