Adventure Ribfest 2019

The BMW MCON and the GS Giants are excited to present Adventure Ribfest 2019, one of the most popular events on the calendar each year. Return to the Waggoner farm in beautiful Centerville, Tennessee in the heart of Hickman County for The Best Ribs You Can Ride To.

Hickman County and the surrounding areas host some of the best riding in the country.  Dual sport riding can be found for all skill levels, from first-time dirt riders to those looking for more challenges.  If dirt, gravel, and streams don't suit you, there are paved roads that rival the best of East Tennessee.

Our site includes plenty of shady spaces for camping, with nearby motels, and all the ribs and chicken that you can eat, lots of other activities, and some of the best camaraderie in the motorcycle world.


This rally site is primitive tent camping. There are Porta-potties but no showers.

There is a hotel approximately 3.5 miles from Ribville: Quality Inn & Suites - (931) 729-5600
