Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering at Ribfest!
We appreciate all the volunteers who helped us at the 2018 Ribfest. If you are interested in Volunteering at our 2019 Ribfest, you can sign up now! It will be our 22nd Annual Ribfest! The dates for 2019 are Friday, August 23rd to Sunday, August 25th, 2019.
Ribfest has been voted Guelph's best outdoor event and, with your support as a volunteer this year, we can make it even better.
Many volunteers are members of the Rotary Club of Guelph Trillium or family members or friends. Other Rotarians from Guelph's other service clubs also lend a hand. Community volunteers are very welcome and absolutely critical to our delivering a successful event to the community.
