Music and Food Festival, June 9 & 10.
Rock, Ribs and Ridges
Rock, Ribs & Ridges is an annual, two-day celebration of great music from legendary artists, finger lickin’ good food and the scenic beauty of the spectacular, natural amphitheater of The Hidden Valley Club ski resort in Vernon, NJ.
This year’s festival, June 9-10, 2012, features Rock-and-Roll Hall of Famers Dickey Betts of the Allman Brothers and Artimus Pyle of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Georgia Satellites, and CB Radio. Betts received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 54th Grammy Awards on February 11.
The Hidden Valley Club offers a truly unique outdoor setting. The concert stage is at the bottom of the ski slope and the spacious, windowed lodge and patios overlooking the performers provide an exceptional VIP experience.
Festival-goers will once again have the opportunity to visit the show's sponsor, Franklin Sussex Auto Mall showroom located at 315 Route 23 North in Sussex for a chance to win a true rock star, VIP experience: sitting front row in a topless Jeep Wrangler to watch the concerts and have a meet-and-greet with Dickey Betts. VIP ticket holders will have the opportunity to park for free in the Franklin Sussex Auto Mall VIP parking lot closest to the festival grounds and all attendees will be able to check out the newest cars and trucks throughout the weekend. As part of the Festival’s community outreach, the dealership will once again host a fundraising rib-eating contest for volunteer firefighters across the state on May 12. Among the many prizes, the winning volunteer firehouse will receive $500.
Barbecue fans will have the opportunity to enjoy mouthwatering BBQ throughout the weekend. Award-winning offerings will be served up from renowned chefs and local rib cooks, who will compete for thousands of dollars in prize money and the titles of “Best Ribs” and “Best Sauce” in a juried rib cook-off. Festival-goers also vote for a “People’s Choice” award.
