Rotary's Sydney Ribfest 2019

109 Ferry Street

902-539-1975



Rotary Ribfest combines fabulous food, family fun and top-notch entertainment to create the biggest and best barbeque of the summer season. Five ribbers competing for top honours are joined by local food vendors to provide an array of taste-tempting choices. Local businesses and service  providers will display their wares for sale in the Rotary Vendors’ Village. There is an excellent kids zone to keep children entertained with games and physical challenges. The Ribfest stage will be a focal point for the entire weekend presenting an excellent line-up that includes High Society, The Privateers, The Andrew Doyle Band, Howie MacDonald and a special four-hour performance by Matt Minglewood on Sunday afternoon.

If you’re worried about extra calories, there’s also a Rotary Ribfest 5-K run on Saturday morning. A separate children/family run will follow.

This popular event is a local favourite.
