Downtown Kitchener Ribfest & Craft Beer Show!

July 20-22, 2012
Victoria Park

Friday 5pm-10pm
Saturday noon-10pm
Sunday noon-6pm

Barbequed ribs and chicken, great craft-brewed beer, live entertainment - all in the great atmosphere of Victoria Park.  Life doesn't get much better!  Bring your friends, family and co-workers and savour the flavour!

Admission is free but donations to The Food Bank of Waterloo Region will be accepted at the gate.  Please note that due to the nature of the event, anyone under the age of 19 must be accompanied by an adult (ie. your parents) to be admitted.

MIDWAY RETURNS!  Due to the overwhelming success last year, the midway will be returning.  Operated by GTA Midways, the family midway will be running adjacent to the Ribfest providing fun activities for children of all ages.

Food: There are food options for kids, vegans, and vegetarians... so please don't be put off by the name for the festival name.. but if you don't like the smell of cooking meat you should keep away from the downtown area all together. 

Food prices range from $7 for a Pulled Pork Sandwich to $22 for a Full Rack.
