2020 Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook Off Cancelled

Reno/Sparks, Nevada – The Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, Nevada, announced today that the 2020 Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook Off has been cancelled due to COVID-19 related state and local government-imposed event restrictions.

The Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook Off is an iconic special event in Northern Nevada and is the largest of its kind in the western United States, bringing hundreds of thousands of rib lovers to Northern Nevada since 1989.

“This was a very difficult decision for us to make, but we are cancelling the 2020 event for the safety of our local residents and loyal guests,” said Nugget Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mark Sterbens. “We are committed to returning with a bigger and better Rib Cook Off, Labor Day weekend of 2021.”

The Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, Nevada is one of the Reno/Tahoe region’s most affordable vacation and convention destinations, featuring a multitude of amenities, with nearly 1,400 guestrooms, 110,000 square feet of meeting space, seven dining outlets, a year-round atrium pool and numerous other attractions.
