Imagine a warm, summer day, live music and the intoxicating smell of smoked barbeque. Rib America combines these great elements into an annual downtown Indianapolis event that brings in thousands of visitors.

This year's performers include George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic, Eddie Money, moe., Cheap Trick, Duke Tumatoe & The Power Trio, Hunter Smith Band, Night Ranger, Tesla and many more!

Admission is free on Friday until 5 p.m. and until 3 p.m. Saturday through Monday. Afterwards, admission is $7. Children 12 and under are always free. Food, beverage, and game tickets are available for purchase in strips of 7 for $10.
