Plans for the 2019 Yankton RibFest are well underway . It is Yankton's first big event of the summer with something for everyone! Your sponsorship and support help us make this a great Yankton event! Your generosity helps with the expenses, bands, insurance, stage, port-a-potties and more.


RIBFEST IS MOVING BACK DOWNTOWN!!! After much consideration, we have decided to take on the RibFest event and bring it back to the historic 3rd street downtown Yankton! We are trying to rebuild the event and reputation, as well as make it a family friendly event! Since 2007 RibFest has been a big part of Yankton and 2019 will be no exception!!!


On Saturday, June 1, we will have a kid's area with bouncy houses, face painting and the Missouri National River Recreation mobile unit on hand. This area will open at 11 am.


Food vendors will be open from 11 am to 10 pm.


The free outdoor concert will start at 11 am. The band line-up is as follows:


11am-2pm Kings of Oblivion

2pm-5pm Checkerhead

5pm-8pm Mike Hilson & Jay Gilbertson with the Austin Buescher Band

8pm-12 Midnight Black Water Band


A 4'x6' Mega Screen will be in operation for the entire event! This assures great marketing for our sponsors! Please see the levels of sponsorship and advertising options in the tab below.


As a sponsor of Yankton RibFest, you will receive special advertising benefits that will reach not only the people in attendance, but also the thousands who visit our Facebook page (2000+ followers) and the official RibFest website. We will boost Facebook posts to reach additional viewers and will be updating the page frequently during the event!
