(Island Health's Vax Van)

Ribs and shots, anyone?

This weekend, Ribfest 2021 kicks off at Esquimalt’s Bullen Park, a highly anticipated return after missing 2020 due to the pandemic.

The event will feature six Ribber teams showcasing their best ribs and BBQ sauce and beer and cider vendors will also be on site to satisfy your thirst. 

This year, 21 musical acts will also be performing over the course of the weekend!
