Ribfest NH WestThe 2013 Rock’n Ribfest is a yearly fest of barbecued ribs and family-friendly amusement, which was founded by the Rotary Club of Nashua West as a campaign for local non-profit organizations.

This time, Zco Corporation, a New Hampshire based application development company, is participating in the fest as a gold sponsor.  Moreover, Zco is proud to present the corresponding iPhone and Android app specifically developed for the celebration, which will be available in the iTunes App Store and Google Play prior to the event.

Rock’n Ribfest is planned for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 14, 15, and 16, 2013, at the Anheuser-Busch brewery, 221 Daniel Webster Highway, Merrimack, NH. The fest enthusiasts can buy ribs and other food specialties from local restaurants and nationally renowned ribbers all through the weekend.

Proceeds from Rock’n Ribfest benefit Nashua Rotary West’s giving program, which in turn assists dozens of local charities, like Big Brothers Big Sisters, Humane Society of Greater Nashua, Nashua Soup Kitchen, and Meals on Wheels. The full list of charities and sponsors is available at the Rock’n Ribfest website.

“As a New Hampshire headquartered company, we are thrilled to be able to give back to our community by doing what we do best,” said Katie Meurin, Zco’s Marketing Director.
