There will be nine ribbers cooking up their unique recipes for a shot at the title of best ribs, best sauce and best pulled pork. The midway will be jam packed with fun stuff, including an 80-foot ferris wheel this year, even bigger than the impressive 60-foot ride last year. A 50/50 draw will benefit local charities, and the winner will also take home cool prizes.
The Pickering Ribfest, hosted by the Rotary clubs of Ajax and Pickering, has grown massively since it began eight years ago.
It started at 32,000 in year one and we were up to 70,000 last year.
I hope to see these entertainers again: Two for the Show, Pickering Rotary Ribfest Lip Sync Battle participants, Fernandez the Hypnotist, Who Stole the Cookies, Rustproof, The Killin' Time Band, Fleetwood Mix, Hotel California, and The Rick Johnson County Jamboree. They were all amazing. My family and I will be going again this year. We go every year. I love the ribs, midway and fun activities. So much fun! I will be reviewing this event for my blog.
Stay for the Night! Enjoy the show!
