Western Canada’s Biggest Rib Festival
Over three days in August, join us in Riverside Park to enjoy live entertainment, vendors, refreshments and of course, award-winning ribs from Champion Ribbers. All activities are free to enjoy, including the Family Fun Zone, which features an assortment of bouncy castles, live family entertainment, face painting, kids games and more!
Why we do Ribfest
Not only are you having a great time at Ribfest, but you’re helping the Rotary Club of Kamloops Daybreak raise money to support various initiatives in the community. 100% of the profits raised at Ribfest are put back into the community.
Our six champion ribber teams will be competing for trophies and bragging rights for best ribs, best sauce and the most coveted award: People’s Choice!
As per city bylaws there are no dogs and no smoking/vaping permitted at Riverside Park
