What is Ribfest?

Ribfest is an annual 4-day fundraising event hosted by The Rotary Club of St. Catharines.

 

This community event brings together food vendors, live music and family-friendly activities.

As one of St. Catharines biggest downtown events, there are over 30,000 annual attendees, 35 hours of live music, local 20 vendors offering food, drinks, merchandise and of course plenty of ribs from your favourite ribbers.  

 

There will be no charge for visitors to enter the park, however donations for the Rotary Club would be greatly apreciated.
