June 15-18, 2017 will mark the return of Loyalist City RibFest for the third 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 spectacular indoor Summer Celebration Sale; a beverage tent with a wide variety offered; terrific entertainment all weekend; and parking by donation (shared with at least two other charitable organizations), the third 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.
