About Cambridge Rotary Ribfest

Cambridge Rotary Ribfest is organized by volunteers from the Rotary Clubs of Cambridge Sunrise and Cambridge North. This is our 6th year hosting this award-winning family-friendly, three-day food extravaganza! As one of the leading events in Waterloo Region, Cambridge Rotary Ribfest begins by bringing together 6 Ribber Teams from across North America, hungry to compete for the Best Ribs Title, and over 30,000 people hungry to taste their mouth-watering fare!

That’s not all! There are great music artists performing, and activities and games for kids of all ages – all in beautiful Riverside Park. The proceeds from this event go directly to the community through Rotary– a good cause, good food, good times and the perfect way to make your summer more memorable.
