Loyalist City RibFest is moving Uptown!!!

For 2018, Loyalist City RibFest will be held at Long Wharf in uptown Saint John.  This year's RibFest will be bigger - and better.

With more space for parking, a larger tent - with the stage, the bar(s) and most of the seating under one roof - more entertainment and a wider variety of vendors.

Loyalist City RibFest 2018

June  14-17, 2018 

Long Wharf 

Saint John , NB

No Admission Charge, Parking by Donation

100% Volunteer, 100% Charity Fundraiser!

June 14-17, 2018 will mark the return of Loyalist City RibFest for the fourth annual edition of this exciting festival.  The RibFest was started in 2015 at Exhibition Park when touring pitmasters (Ribbers) wanted to put on an event in Saint John.  The Saint John Y's Men's Club (now called Saint John Y Service Club) were lucky enough to connect with the Ribbers and have become the hosts, and primary charitable beneficiary of the event.

Featuring professional Ribbers; various vendors selling a variety of other food (and non-food items); a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages offered; terrific entertainment all weekend; and parking by donation (shared with at least four other charitable organizations), the fourth annual Loyalist City RibFest promises to be a terrific time.

​​The Saint John Y's Men's Club was chartered at the YMCA on January 23, 1925.  Since it was chartered, the club has been providing a valuable service to the YMCA in Saint John and the community as a whole by raising funds to support many worthwhile community groups, organizations and individuals.

The club's principle fundraising activities include the Real Atlantic Home Show, catering, and now the Loyalist City RibFest.
