It's time once again to head down to Spencer Smith Park in Burlington this Labour Day Weekend and enjoy some yummy ribs with the family! Burlington, Ontario is once again hosting "Canada’s Largest Ribfest" August 31 – September 3, 2012.
Burlington Ribfest is a community event that has raised more than $2.3 million for local, national and international charities. Organized by the Rotary Club of Burlington Lakeshore, the Ribfest brings you a four-day food extravaganza that's fun for the whole family! The event brings together 18 Ribber Teams from across North America, competing for the title of "Best Ribs". You and your family can join the more than 175,000 people who will taste the delicious fare these world class Rib-Masters have to offer.
Last year the festival barbequed over 150,000 pounds of ribs, however if you are looking for more than just ribs, there's a lot more than just pork to eat. We hear that Ribfest has everything from Chicken, sausages, baked potatoes and ice cream to corn, fried onions, funnel cakes and elephant ears. You will surely find something to tickle your tastebuds this weekend at Ribfest.
Not only is there a spectacular offering of world-class ribs; there is a great musical line up and activities for kids of all ages. Proceeds from this event go to charitable organizations; athletic clubs, food banks, music programs, academic scholarships, after school programs and environmental organizations.
This weekend, get out to Spencer Smith and enjoy wonderful food, exciting entertainment and help support some amazing charitable organizations. Find out why this event is referred to as being the "Superbowl of Ribfests"...it sounds like a perfect way to close out your summer.
