What's it about and what does it support?

The Eden Prairie Noon Rotary’s Rib Fest fundraiser is held annually in June in conjunction with the Minnesota Festival of Jazz on the Prairie, which is sponsored by the City of Eden Prairie. This event is the major fundraiser for our club.

New this Year - Boom Island Beer!  We're proud to partner with one of our fine local breweries, Boom Island Beer. Several of their delicious brews will be available for purchase for $7 per beer.

The profits from the event support local and international service projects of the Eden Prairie Noon Rotary including:

  • My Book Day: a literacy program where all Eden Prairie first graders experience a celebration of reading and receive their own hard-cover book. This program is held in conjunction with the students of Eden Prairie High School.

  • Rotary Ethics Workshop: a one-day off-campus business ethics workshop for over 60 emerging leaders from Eden Prairie High School.

  • STRIVE program and scholarships for area high school students.

  • Other local programs including Let's Go Fishing, Jeremiah House, Beyond the Yellow Ribbon, PROP, Warm Heads, Warm Hands Warm Hearts, and STRIVE

  • Providing clean water, promoting peace, saving mothers & children, supporting education, growing local economies and fighting disease in local, regional and international venues

  • Polio eradication: a Rotary International worldwide program to eliminate this disease.
