Canada's Largest Ribfest
Posted: Aug 26, 2019

August 30th – September 2nd, 2019

Canada’s Largest Ribfest, located at Burlington’s Spencer Smith Park features award-winning Ribbers from all over North America. Taking place over Labour Day weekend, the event provides family-friendly fun; musical entertainment, an artisan fair, a kids zone and, of course, messy, mouth-watering ribs! This year marks the 23rd anniversary of this charitable fundraising initiative.

Canada’s Largest Ribfest is proudly organized by Rotary Burlington Lakeshore. This is our largest and most successful community event and has been around since we planned Ontario’s first Ribfest in 1996. Since that day, all proceeds collected have gone to charity.

Canada’s Largest Ribfest is Burlington’s Premier Fundraising Event proudly organized by RBL embodying Rotary Principles, community good will and club fellowship.
