Welcome to the Spartanburg Southside Lions Club Sparkle City Rhythm & Ribs Festival. Our aim is to provide you with one of the best musical entertainment experiences you can possibly have. We hope to make this year's festival even more exciting than the previous ones, and we have you to thank for making our past events a success.

As a community service organization, we believe in giving back to the community. Proceeds from the event will be channeled back into the community through our various service projects. Our efforts include providing free eye exams and eye glasses to those in need, as well as supporting Backpack Buddies, a program aimed at combating hunger among children by providing food packs to take home on weekends. This year, we will also be making financial donations to The South Carolina School for the Blind, Miracle Hill Ministries, Upstate Stand Down for Veterans, and the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen..

At Spartanburg Southside Lions, we are passionate about making the Sparkle City Rhythm & Ribs Festival the best event it can be. We sincerely appreciate your support over the years and look forward to seeing you again this year. We invite you to share our website and this event with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

The Sparkle City Rhythm & Ribs Festival was born out of the need to raise money to give back to the community. As a club chartered in May 2011, we have discovered that the need for community assistance is greater than we ever imagined. 2 lions club members
