    Here are a number of ways you can measure why we have the title of "Canada's Largest Ribfest." You could measure by attendance numbers... we broke the attendance record in 2009 when more than 175,000 people attended the festival! You could measure by the amount of ribs we sold...would you believe that more than 150,000 pounds of ribs were sold over the course of the four-day event? Well, it's true! You could measure by the number of Rib Teams that participate...we annually welcome 20 "Ribber Teams" from across North America! You could measure by the amount of money raised for the community...more than $3 million has been raised for local community organizations and charities over the last 19 years! Come on out and join in the fun and food at Canada's Largest Ribfest!
