The Ribfest is held over the Canada Day long weekend in the Town Hall Park in the heart of the beautiful town of Gananoque, the gateway to the world famous 1000 Islands.
Now in its 6th year, this popular event is jointly organized and hosted by the Rotary Club and the Lions Club of Gananoque. It attracts well over 20,000 visitors who come to enjoy live music, great food and some fantastic deals. Children are delighted with the free pony rides and the other events and attractions designed especially for them.
On the evening of Canada Day, we hold a fantastic fireworks display to celebrate the birthday of our great country.
The Ribfest is a GREEN event. We have recycling stations places around the park to make it easy for everyone to help keep the area clean and reduce waste.
Ribfest is Pet-free so please don’t bring your pets.
All proceeds from this fundraising event are returned back to the community through charitable organizations who receive donations from both the Rotary Club of Gananoque and the Lions Club of Gananoque.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2011 Family Ribfest!
