Ribfest is BACK! August 12th to 14th 2022.
Held at Victoria Park, Cobourg, the 14th annual Northumberland Ribfest & Music Festival will be a blast! Each year, the number of visitors gets bigger, the food gets better and the Rotary Club of Cobourg is able to do more in the community and abroad because of your support.
This event is a fundraiser to help the Rotary Club of Cobourg support worthy causes at home and abroad.
A few of the contributions we have made in the past include:
• $800,000 commitment to the Northumberland Hills Hospital • $300,000 commitment to the Cobourg Community Centre • Ongoing development of Cobourg Heritage Harbour • Literacy projects at home and abroad • Clean water projects • Polio eradication
Our August Ribfest weekend is one of three major fundraising activities the Club undertakes. In February we hold our Annual Sportsman’s Night Dinner & Auction and every Canada Day Weekend we host our Rotary Arts & Crafts Festival as part of the Cobourg Waterfront Festival.
