What’s ooey-gooey, sweet but salty, meaty but tender and comes in all sorts of varieties? Well my friends, the answer is RIBS and you can eat them to your heart’s content this weekend at VP’s Annual Ribfest running from July 29th to August 2nd. What better way to celebrate the Civic holiday and the summer’s second-last long weekend?
The Annual London Ribfest is operated by the Boys’ & Girls’ Club of London and is supported by Childcan. It is the second largest festival of its kind in North America! How lucky are we to have this right at our doorstep?
Here’s what you can expect at this year’s festival:
- Ribs…go figure!
- 100 live performances
- Chicken wing competition
- Cooking demonstrations
- Wagon Rides
- Crayola Kids Play & Craft Pavilion
- Karaoke Stage
- Face Painting
- 100’s of Vendors
Londoner’s get to have their say too with the People’s Choice Awards. Ribfesters can vote on who they think is the best vendor in categories like Best Ribs, Best Beverage and Best Entertainment Act. You can get ballots at the festival in one of the two beer gardens or the festival office. You can also watch as the judges select the Best Ribs, Best Wings and Best BBQ Sauce on Sunday at 3pm. This is a huge deal for rib enthusiasts.
Hope to see you there! Have a happy and safe weekend 🙂
