The Rotary Ribfest is back after a long hiatus (2 years ago was the last one!) at Montebello Park this weekend through until Monday.


Ribfest is an annual 4-day community fundraising event hosted by The Rotary Club of St. Catharines. It brings together food vendors, live music and family-friendly activities and is one of St. Catharines’ biggest downtown events with over 35 hours of live music, over 20 vendors offering food, drinks, merchandise and of course plenty of ribs.​

An expected 30,000+ visitors will visit Montebello Park from Friday, July 29 through to Monday August 1, 2022 to enjoy ribs from 5 of the best ribbers from Canada and the U.S. The hours of the event are 12:00 Noon until 11:00 PM except on Monday when the event closes at 8:00 PM.

There will be no charge for visitors to enter the park.

As with many Rotary events, the objective is not only to raise funds for the community of St. Catharines, but also to offer an enjoyable, family-oriented event. In addition to food concessions, entertainment and a children’s area, we also include an area where product and services can be demonstrated or sold.

Some of the largest rib joints from the U.S. and Canada  are onsite to give visitors a taste of the best ribs available today…. all in one location including: – Silver Bullet BBQ, Bone Daddys BBQ, Uncle Sams BBQ, Billy Bones BBQ and Camp 31 BBQ.
