ORANGEVILLE RIBFEST

Welcome to the Orangeville Rotary Ribfest! 2016 marks the 7th anniversary of this great community event. Our six fabulous ribbers will be serving up thousands of mouth-watering-barbecued-fall-off-the-bone-get-your-hands-messy ribs. Barbequed ribs, a beer tent, continuous live-entertainment on the big stage—there’s no better way to celebrate summer in Orangeville! Admission is free but donations are gratefully accepted at the gate. The midway, presented by Albion Amusements, will be running all weekend to provide fun for the kids. 2016's event will be at the Alder Street Rec Centre from July 15 – 17. Hope to see you there!

Until 2015, the annual Orangeville Rotary Ribfest was part of a $250,000 fundraising campaign to bring a splashpad to Fendley Park in Orangeville. This five-year fundraising initiative – involving the annual Orangeville Rotary Ribfest from 2010 to 2015 — has been one of the Rotary Club of Orangeville’s biggest efforts. The splash pad opened in early July 2015, and with the proceeds from the 2015 Ribfest, we have exceeded our fundraising goal of a quarter of a million dollars. Thank-you Orangeville! The splashpad could not have been built without your tremendous support. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to the 7th annual Orangeville Rotary Ribfest in 2016, proceeds from which will be directed to the new Rotary Way bike route, the exciting new intergenerational GrandPals program, and other Rotary projects in the community.
