We're Back!


This year marks the return of the full event Loyalist City RibFest.  We are excited to present an event featuring Food, Music, Beverages, and Fun.


This year also marks a new location and a new partnership, The Lord Beaverbrook Rink.


This year, the vendors will be set up in part of the parking lot, as will some seating.  The rest of the lot will be used for parking.  Inside, we will locate the bar, the stage, and the rest of the seating.  The event will feature live music to keep you entertained.


There will be no charge for admission or parking, but donations will be collected.


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.
