North America’s best RibFest circuit hits Calgary this weekend

Via Chinook Rotary

One of Canada’s largest BBQ events is in town for one weekend only! The Rotary RibFest arrives in Calgary with some of the most impressive BBQ vendors in all of North America.

Honestly, did Stampede EVER leave? On a weekend with CCMA events and seemingly solid weather, RibFest is kind of icing on the cake. Grab a few beers, bring the fam, and chow down on a serious mix of great BBQ.

Also, live bands will be playing all weekend long. That means you can swing by the Stampede grounds, grab a beer, some BBQ, and jam out to some tunes…then head to the Cowboys Tent (aka CCMA Fan Village), grab a beer, and jam out to some tunes. Wowza.

Finally, Sunday will wrap up with a rib tasting competition to decide the winners of the weekend. Obviously, with Rotary RibFest Calgary and the CCMA’s in town, we all win regardless of the judge’s picks.
