Ribfest sets its entertainment lineup for summer event

CORNWALL, Ontario – It may be the middle of February, but Ribfest organizers have already solidified their lineup for this summer’s tastiest event.

July is fast approaching and with it, comes the smell of barbecue and the award-winning, finger-licking ribs of the Cornwall Seaway Lions Club Ribfest. 

“We’re gearing up for a fabulous event as 2016 marks our fifth anniversary,” said John Lucio, Ribfest chair.  “We have a big celebration in mind this year, starting with great entertainment, combined with our traditional midway, the beer garden and, of course, ribs galore. 

“We’re also providing a free kids zone so little ones can enjoy the park as much as their folks do.”

The Cornwall Seaway Lions are actively seeking sponsors for this major summer festival. 

“The sponsors are what make this event the huge success it is,” added Lucio. “They are the main reason we can inject so much money back into the community.  They are the back bone of Ribfest.”

The festival is expanding to four days, running from July 21 to 24.
