Ribfest Celebrates Canada Day

Celebrate Canada Day with BBQ Sauce and Ribs


Anyone that has ever met me can tell (judging mainly by my size) that I love to eat. Those of you who, like me, enjoy devouring some good grub and don't have any plans to leave town for the long weekend might be interested to know that the 8th Annual Toronto Ribfest kicks off today and runs until Monday afternoon.

For those of you who haven't had the chance to experience Ribfest before, let me break down what you should expect for the weekend: ribs, children's games, ribs, live entertainment, ribs, fireworks, and ribs. Admission is completely free, and all proceeds from the event go to charities such as the Trillium Health Centre, CNIB, the Easter Seals Society, the Salvation Army, Women's Habitat and more.

Ribbers from across North America (including one of my favorites, Camp 31 from Alabama) will be setting up shop at Centennial Park, and there's tons of events — concerts, face painting, bumper cars, performances, and even a CIC Citizenship Ceremony — to keep everyone occupied and having fun.

Ribfest kicks off this morning, June 29, at 11am at Centennial Park (a short trip away from the UrbanNOISE festival, so you can check them both out this weekend) and runs until Monday afternoon.
