Rib and Wing Festival heats up at Seven Springs

The eighth annual Rib & Wing Festival at Seven Springs Mountain Resort kicked off Friday afternoon, with plenty of delicious activities.

Vendors from across the country set up shop on the resort’s grounds, offering guests tastes of their unique recipes.

The clip offers a glimpse of all the festival action, including long lines forming at popular booths like Butch’s Smack Your Lips BBQ and Mojo’s. Other vendors cooking up ribs and wings at the festival include Armadillo’s BBQ and Rib Company, Smokin’ Joe’s Hog Wild Barbecue, and Pigfoot BBQ. According to Seven Springs’ website, most of the vendors hail from the Midwest or southern U.S.

The weekend-long festival’s entertainment didn’t stop at food — live music acts like Joe Grushecky & The Houserockers, Brighton Boys, Chris Higby and more provided the soundtrack to the summertime barbecue festivities.

For guests less interested in food and more about outdoor adventure, Seven Springs also offered zip-lining, golfing, and spa treatments through the weekend. The ski lifts were even in operation to provide visitors with a birds-eye view of the resort.

The rib and wing fun comes to an end Sunday at 4 p.m.
