Ribfest is back

Rotary Ribfest is three days of great food, live music and family fun brought to you by the Rotary Clubs of CBRM. Five of North America’s best ribbers will take to Sydney’s Open Hearth Park  during the weekend, along with vendors, children’s entertainment, a beer tent and live Cape Breton entertainment on the main stage.

Use the menu below to find information on sponsorship opportunities, the Rotary RibFest events calendar, and what vendors will be arriving here this July.

Thanks to our Prime Ribber, Destination Membertou.

Looking for inspiration? Look no further.

Jo Poulette signed up to volunteer for this year’s Rotary RibFest in honour of her brother Niko Clair and cousin Ozzy Clair who recently lost their lives in fishing accident.

Jo started volunteering 4 years ago, overcoming her social anxieties and coming back year after year. She loves the work and also wants to show her community how important it is to volunteer.

She told us, “I wanted to volunteer my time and show other First Nations community members the importance of giving back.”

Jo will be spending the weekend with us at Rotary Ribfest in honour of her heroes, Niko and Ozzy. Thank you Jo.
