Each year the Rotary and Lions Clubs organize and hosts 1000 Islands Family Ribfest, and we strive to make sure that each year is bigger and better than the last from award winning ribs to jam packed live musical performances.

 

Bring Out the Kids

One thing for sure fun will abound at this year’s Kidz Zone.  It will be the destination of choice for young ones from toddlers to teens.  Best of all its free!  The Great 1000 Islands Ducky Race is back at Confederation Park 10:30; followed by free Cake at noon.Physical fun can be had on enormous bouncy castles that will keep the little ones entertained for hours. 

The Festival reserves the right to inspect bags and knapsacks brought into the festival grounds by attendees.
