Get those bibs ready!

Ribfest has announced their return to Esquimalt for their 2022 event, the perfect way to end the summer, indulge in some delicious local eats and reunite with friends.

This September, the annual event features 6 Ribber teams showcasing their best ribs and BBQ sauce, including a brand new addition ‘Pit Crew BBQ’.

There will also be vendors selling beer and cider, featuring your favourites from Driftwood Brewery, Merridale Cider, Vancouver Island Brewing and more. 

Everything you need to help keep you satisfied

This year, over 20 local musical acts will be performing over the course of the weekend to keep you entertained.

You can see a full Ribfest schedule here.

Admission to the event is free. All proceeds (outside operating costs) are funneled back into the community through the Esquimalt Firefighters Charitable Foundation, local charities and school- sponsored activities.

Ribfest is currently looking for volunteers to help the event weekend operate smoothly. Those interested can apply for jobs including cleanup, ID bracelet booth, media team, etc. via the Ribfest website.
