Our Ribfest is Pickering’s largest festival. With over 80,000 visitors in 2019, we raised over $100,000 for local charities. The event was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19.

Because of on-going COVID restrictions, Pickering’s 2021 Ribfest will be a socially-distanced and well-organized drive thru, with three Rib Trucks and six additional Vendor Trucks. Our goal this year is to serve 10,000 people and raise $25,000.00 with 50% of net proceeds going towards Senior resident programs within out community.

A sponsorship to this event will do much more than offer your company exposure locally. It will associate your company with Rotary International’s network of over 33,000 chapters and 1,200,000 members worldwide.

Pickering Rotary supports our local community with our Annual Pickering Rotary Music Festival, Scholarships, Food Drives, the Pickering Rotary Park, and so much more. The Rotary Club of Pickering is passionate about the many local community groups we support. We are equally passionate and excited about our Indigenous People and International Projects. Our International Project allows us to help countries obtain clean water through water filtration in many of the underdeveloped countries. We aim to make a difference both in our community and in the world at large.

Our vision is to grow this event back to its former glory in 2022, by returning to a live event format that provides a safe, enjoyable, family-friendly community event; and expanding our food selection beyond Ribs to include a wide selection of multi-cultural and international cuisine. So next year our Ribfest will be evolving into a FoodFest!
