Summer might be on its way out on the calendar, but for meat lovers, there’s never a bad time for a good ol’ BBQ fest. While we do have the amazing Brewery & the Beast each year, the less fancy roll-up-your-sleeves events are usually held in the ‘burbs…until now. Vancouver’s first-ever Ribfest is set to go down at the end of the month.
Taking place over two mouth-watering days, September 21 to 22, at the Plaza of Nations in Vancouver, Ribfest hopes to draw in fans for all the lip-smacking goodness of ribs (pork and beef), pulled pork, smoked and baked chicken, baked beans, and southern-style slaw.
Put on by the Ontario-based Crazy Canuck Smokers, the event has been making the rounds across the country this summer (and will also make a stop the weekend ahead of the Vancouver event locally in New Westminster).
Organizers say their aim is to dish up authentic southern style barbeque right here in Canada, and they’ll be bringing their showmanship–not to mention heaps of meat–to create a fun and exciting atmosphere for the whole family. There will be live music, and of course plenty to purchase to eat.
When: September 21-22, 2018
Where: Plaza of Nations – 750 Pacific Boulevard, Vancouver
