The fifth annual Ridgefield Gone Country returns Saturday, May 5, and Sunday, May 6.

More than 6,000 individuals attended the BBQ Festival last year. The event features a world-class BBQ championship, family fun with kids rides, a riding bull, live music from several great bands, and great food. It will be the same weekend as the Downtown Ridgefield Spring Stroll.

The festival will be held at the Lounsbury House, located at 316 Main Street. Tickets prices are the same as last year, $10 for adults and $5 for students. Children under 12 are admitted free. Learn more about the event at RidgefieldBBQCT.com.

Proceeds of the event go to scholarships and charities via the Ridgefield Rotary grant process.
