It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of this year’s 2021 RIBFEST.
We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment, not only to the exhibitors, Ribbers, the community and visitors who support and love this summer tradition.

This is not a decision we have taken lightly, but we know it is the right decision to ensure we can again celebrate safely with you ! Take care and see you in 2022. 

Gananoque Town Park  -Admission One Small Toonie, Children Free

Nothing says summer like the aroma of sizzling gourmet meats on the fired up smoking hot grills.  With plenty ribs, live music, activities and kid friendly food. Ribfest is an event the entire family can enjoy.

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

Giving Back

Ribfest believes in giving back to the communities through local partnerships.  Ribfest is a non profit organization that is run by the Rotary and Lions Clubs of Gananoque that raises dollars to reach their goals of helping those in need.


Buy Local

Ribfest understands the importance of supporting local and works closely with local businesses and organizations in order to promote growth.

Ribfest is an amazing opportunity for new and established businesses to engage their local community on a more personal level and give back in positive manner.


Support Regional Artists and Musicians 

Ribfest works with local artists in the community in order to give them a chance to showcase their talent in front of friends and family.  Ribfest is an opportunity for these local artists to perform in front of large crowds and take the next step in their musical careers.
