Info from Mississauga Ribfest: "2019 is the 16th year of this family-focused summer time event that is brought to the Mississauga area by two Rotary Clubs in Mississauga. Ribfest hosts 9 amazing Ribbers selling mouth watering, finger lickin' BBQ beef and pork ribs, chicken, as well as several other diverse food and non-food vendors.

Live entertainment is provided on the main stage, featuring a broad range of musical acts primarily focused on local talent.

All the food, live entertainment and fun is complimented by a great selection of beer, wine, coolers, and more.

This year, we have added a Fun Zone for both adults and kids alike; featuring 4 fun, bouncy inflatables, a 25' climbing wall, face painting and Axe Throwing!

Ribfest is an event that is brought to you by many volunteers from both Mississauga and Mississauga West Rotary Clubs. It is so very generously supported by our many sponsors and could not succeed without the hundreds of volunteers from neighbouring schools, organizations, and the local community who help out every year. All the money raised goes directly back into your community.

Since the start of Mississauga Ribfest, Rotary has donated more than $1.4 million to the wide variety of organizations. This year we are happy to announce our giving will be themed around 'Community Wellness' initiatives that many people in Mississauga rely on."
