The Bathurst Rotary Ribfest, drive-thru version, will take place from September 25 to 27, 2020. There will be two "ribbers" this year: Texas Rangers and Crabby BBQ Shack.
The schedule will be from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on September 25 and 26 and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on September 27. Of course, many measures will be in place to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19. Among other things, vehicles will have to leave the parking lot immediately after shopping. More details will be shared HERE.
The 2020 location will be the same as for previous years, in the parking lot between Harbourview Boulevard and Cunard Street in Bathurst.
What is a Ribfest?
Ribfest is a professional barbecue competition that has expanded across North America and has branded itself as one of the larger events travelling from city to city to raise money for charity.
