Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson  said, “Rock’n Ribville is Lawrenceville’s premier event of the year, bringing heightened awareness of the College to the surrounding community while showcasing the local scene to thousands of visitors from all over the South. It is a great event and we are proud to call it our own!”
