Do your part by following public health advice. It is important to wear a face mask or covering, practice physical distancing, and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

Carnivores will take over Downtown Sudbury each Labour Day weekend in support of Sudbury YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. The weekend will include live entertainment from more than 20 performers as well as Festival Foods, Craft Vendors, Children Activities and a Car & Motorcycle Show .The ‘main course’ of the event will be outstanding barbequing, provided by six competing teams.

Attendees are encouraged to rate the ribs, chicken and sauce of the six competitors at the Downtown Sudbury Booth, with the “People’s Choice” award being announced 5pm on Sunday.

While over one tonne of chicken and ribs were eaten at last year’s event, there is more than meat at this annual festival. In fact over 1000 deep fried Mars Bars, 5000 twisted taters, and countless other goodies were enjoyed in 2015! Downtown Sudbury’s Rib Fest is made possible by its hard working volunteers and community members! It is this dedication and community support which has made Downtown Sudbury’s Rib Fest one of the top 5 in Canada! Fill your stomachs and show your support at this year's Sudbury Ribfest!
