Rib-Fest-2013

The downtown core of St. Catharines will come alive this weekend with a love and appreciation for all things fresh off the grill. Rib Fest rolls into town featuring award-winning BBQ kings from across the province. Running from Friday to Monday, the park will be open and serving up the goods from noon to 11pm (park closes at 9pm on Monday).

Always an exciting weekend at Montebello Park, Rib Fest is a tradition in the name of a great cause. Hosted by St. Catharines’ Rotary Club, this event draws thousands of locals to indulge in great ribs and plenty of other lip-smacking goodness too! These delicious delights include the King Corn booth where you will find me, serving up corn fresh from the farm. Stop by and say hello!
