The Countdown is ON for Rib-Goodness and FUN!

The countdown to Ribfest is on! With just over 14 weeks away, get ready for a sizzling experience like no other. Anticipation is building for the ultimate celebration of all things ribs, music and FUN! Here’s a look at what’s new for the festival!

Vendor Mania

Supporting local is one thing the Rotary Clubs take a great deal of pride in. The Artisan Alley at Ribfest is a wonderful addition to the festival and a chance for local artisans to showcase their products or services. Here are a few of our confirmed vendors for September:

  • Smoking Good Wood: a local family owned business based out of Calgary, Alberta. We bring quality firewood in from BC and Saskatchewan for indoor and outdoor fireplaces, wood-burning pizza ovens, fire pits, and campfires
  • SVP Photography/The Art of Portraiture: Shelley V owns and operates a portrait studio overlooking Fish Creek Park in Calgary. She’s an active member of the photographic community and “her portraits and paintings have been described as timeless, classical, and elegant.”
  • Wild West RV: With over 20 years in the RV industry, Wild West RV’s offers an extensive selection of both new and used RV parts at competitive prices. They also have mobile technicians for reliable and hassle-free RV repair services to customers in Calgary, AB.

If you are interested in being a vendor, please reach out! We are always looking for new talent and local goods. 

*No food vendors unless the food is sealed and served “take-away” please.

Let the Music Play

With more confirmed bands, Ribfest is shaping up to be an even more exhilarating event. Get ready to groove to the rhythm of talented musicians and enjoy musical styles that will keep you entertained throughout the festival.

Friday night has gone country so saddle up and dust off those boots. The opening act is Lori Kole, hailing from Calgary, she is a Country Americana artist with 20+ years on stage performing her co-written Nashville produced originals and covers of rock and country. Our headliner that night is the one and only Jeff Catto! This amazing artist also calls Calgary home and we are so pleased to welcome him back to Ribfest! Jeff delivers a blend of singer-songwriter pop/rock country mixed with Gospel roots that has been compared to and influenced by notable artists such as, Dierks Bentley, Niko Moon, and Needtobreathe.
