October 1st and 2nd, 2022 Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud Supper Show is hosting its first-annual Rib Fest! The weekend-long festival will be fun for the whole family with fresh ribs from local vendors, games, inflatables, live music, axe throwing, and an authentic lumberjack competition. 

Vendors will be competing for the title of ­­­Rib Fest People’s Choice Champion. They will be smoking ribs all day both days on site and serving them fresh alongside homemade side-items and beverages. The winner will be decided by guests by voting for their favorite ribs. The prizes are $2,000 for First Place, $1,500 for Second Place, and $1,000 for Third Place. 

During the festival, check out the Smoky Mountain Wood Choppin’ Championship- an authentic timbersports competition! Lumberjacks from around the country will be there to compete in these events: Standing Block Chop, Underhand Chop, Singlebuck, Springboard Chop, Hot Saw, and Speed Climb. This is taking place on both days of the festival. 

Enjoy live music from local artists both days from Charlie Bob Smith, River Divide, Whiskey Business, and a surprise headliner. For the kids and the kids-at-heart, there will be inflatables, mini-golf, face-painting, caricature drawing, and games.  

We don’t know what we’re more excited for: the ribs or the competition! What about you?
