Cornwall Ontario – BBQ ribs, chicken and the fixings will be the choice of many as one of the summer’s most popular festivals returns to Lamoureux Park. Ribfest 2019 takes place from Thursday, July 25th and continues on until Sunday, July 28th – offering four full days of deliciousness and fun!
Once again ribbers from across North America will compete for awards voted on by their customers. Participating ribbers this year include Ribs Royale, Chop Shop, Texas Rangers, Mississippi Smoke House, Crabby’s and Smokehouse Bandits.
Last year the Optimist Club raised close to $70,000 for community causes, and once again the volunteer group has planned a wide array of activities that include live entertainment, beer garden, midway rides, vendors, and a kids zone. There is something for everyone, and the best part is that admission to the festival is free!
There is ample free parking at the Cornwall Civic Complex or Cornwall Community Museum on Water Street, just steps from Lamoureux Park. There is also nearby on- and off-street parking available in Downtown Cornwall.
