2017 Ribfest Guelph

2017 Ribfest in Guelph

Every year, Ribfest travels nationally to spread the joy of BBQ ribs, flavourful snacks, and live entertainment. Ribfest will be returning to Guelph this August, and it’s time for the locals to get excited.

Ribfest will be in Guelph at the following dates and times:

  • August 24, 2017, 5PM – 11PM
  • August 25, 2017, 12PM – 11PM
  • August 26, 2017, 11AM – 11PM
  • August 27, 2017, 11AM – 8PM

Events will be held at Riverside Park (709 Woolwich St.), and this year, you can expect the same great vendors and sponsors like Sleeman brewery.

Although ribs are the focus, you should still consider attending if you’re vegetarian or are looking for somewhere to take the family. Alternate options include Billy Bob’s Bloomin’ Onions, Ontario Corn Roasters, Tornado Potato, and more.

Aside from food, there will be vendors who will attend and run contests or sell their products – great for family fun! A few non-food vendors that may attend include Bell Canada, Bath Fitters, and Oktoberfest.

Have kids? Bring them and keep them entertained by getting their faces painted, enhance their reading by visiting the Guelph Library Bookmobile, or keep them active by stopping by the Guelph Bulldog Fitness booth.

Young adults? Enjoy live bands and the fresh beverage booths.

Love cars? There will be a classic car show on the Saturday and Sunday from 9AM to 3:30PM. You can enter the show with only $5 per car, with approximately over 300 vehicles attending. There will be a trophy, and a 50/50 draw winner that will be announced on both days on the main stage.

Full vendor and event confirmations will be announced weeks prior to the events. Stay tuned by following them on Facebook at Ribfest Guelph, and Twitter at @RibfestGuelph.
