BOISE -- Grab your bibs and get ready to chow down.

The annual Northwest Ribfest is returning, but in a new location for 2013.

Due to overwhelming popularity, this year's Ribfest has moved to the Idaho Center Amphitheater in Nampa.

The annual event is a barbecue competition looking for the best recipes in the area.

Admission is free to get in, but you'll have to pay to taste the ribs and other side dishes.

Ribfest gets underway Thursday and runs through Saturday.
