Buffalo has become well-known for its annual Chicken Wing Festival, and rightly so. After all, the Queen City is the birthplace of the famous wing. And in nearby London, Ontario, there’s another finger-licking festival that appeals to carnivores far and wide — Ribfest London!
Who doesn’t love sinking their teeth into some messy and mouthwatering ribs? An annual event, Ribfest London will take place Aug. 1-5 in beautiful Victoria Park.
The first and largest rib festival in North America, Ribfest will feature 10 rib teams battling it out for awards and bragging rights. The festival will also offer live entertainment, 75 bands on five stages, carnival rides and a refreshing beer garden. And even if you don’t love those messy ribs, there will be 100 food booths offering everything from tasty appetizers and delicious desserts to full meals. Admission is free!
Ribfest hours are from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. For more information, please call (519) 432-5189 or visit www.canadasbiggestparty.com/festivalsontario_004.htm. And for helpful information on planning a quick getaway to London, please visit www.londontourism.ca.
