100% Volunteer, 100% Charity Fundraiser!


June 18-20, 2021 will mark the return of Loyalist City RibFest for the sixth annual edition of this exciting festival.  


Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year will be completely different from the norm, but the same as last year.  The provincial government has given us permission to hold RibFest this year, but only as a drive-thru event.  Attendees will enter the site at one end, line up in their vehicles onsite, place their orders and pick them up at their chosen vendor.


​Masks will be required to enter the event grounds, even in your car.


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.


​​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 catering, casinos, and now the Loyalist City RibFest.
