Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering at Ribfest!
It is with regret that the Rotary Club of Guelph Trillium has cancelled Ribfest 2020. Over the past few months, we have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 developments. We had hoped with careful planning that we could host Ribfest again this year. Not only is it our primary fundraising event, it is also an opportunity for the community to come together for the best end of summer party in Guelph! We recognize that everyone is anxious to return to events like this. However, our first responsibility must be to support the ongoing recovery efforts due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. We have determined that it would be impossible to maintain social distancing at such a large event, and therefore we could not ensure the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, vendors and rib teams.
The proceeds from Ribfest allow us to support over twenty-five different community organizations who apply for funds each year. In the interim, we are exploring fundraising options until we can meet again at Ribfest next summer! Watch for further announcements. In the meantime, if you would like to donate to support our community allocations program click here.
For those of you who have volunteered in the past - THANK YOU! We look forward to seeing everyone at Ribfest 2021!
