The 10th Annual Amherstburg Ribfest proudly presented by the Amherstburg Rotary Club, has expanded and now at a bigger new location, the Libro Credit Union Centre, taking place July 5-7, 2019.

This is a family event – there is something for everyone – food, entertainment, rides, children’s activities, a licensed beverage area, daily 50/50 draws and best of all – you’ll get to experience some the best ribbers in the world! Other great food vendors will be onsite as well for a varied selection of eats for those not in the mood for ribs.
