After a 2-year hiatus, we’re back!

Ribfest is an annual 4-day community fundraising event hosted by The Rotary Club of St. Catharines. It brings together food vendors, live music and family-friendly activities.

We are pleased to return to Montebello Park this summer.  Ribfest continues to be one of St. Catharines biggest downtown events.  There are over 30,000 attendees, 35 hours of live music, over 20 vendors offering food, drinks, merchandise and of course plenty of ribs from Bone Daddy’s Ribs, Billy Bones BBQ, Silver Bullet BBQ, Camp 31 BBQ and Uncle Sam’s BBQ.

An expected 30,000+ visitors will visit Montebello Park from Friday, July 29 through to Monday August 1, 2022 to enjoy ribs from 5 of the best ribbers from Canada and the U.S.  The hours of the event are 12:00 Noon until 11:00 PM except on Monday when the event closes at 8:00 PM.  There will be no charge for visitors to enter the park.

 

As with many Rotary events, our objective is not only to raise funds for the community of St. Catharines, but also to offer an enjoyable, family-oriented event.  In addition to food concessions, entertainment and a children’s area, we also include an area where product and services can be demonstrated or sold.
