Toronto Ribfest, the largest Canada Day celebration, is held over the long weekend at Centennial Park in Etobicoke. In its 7th year, this popular event put on by the Rotary Club of Etobicoke attracts over 100,000 visitors who come to enjoy live music, succulent ribs and the beer tents. Children are delighted with candy floss, carnival rides, the climbing wall and pony rides. On Canada Day, a lively fireworks display celebrates Canada's birthday at dusk.
This year the Vendor area has been expanded to include an arts and crafts show that will become a major feature over the next few years. All proceeds from this fundraising event are returned back to the community through charitable organizations who receive donations from the Rotary Club of Etobicoke. Over the past fifteen years, the Club has donated more than $1 million to local charities, including the Trillium Health Centre, CNIB, the Easter Seals Society, the Salvation Army, Women's Habitat, the Dorothy Ley Hospice and LAMP, to name a few.
Make Ribfest your family destination this Canada Day weekend - there's fun and excitement for all ages!
