Food festivals. There's nothing like them. Everyone that's around you is so happy that you're bonding over food, and you get to try food you probably don't eat on the daily. Us Ottawan's love our food festivals, and we're truly devoted.
So you could say we're all pretty excited that Ottawa RibFest on Sparks Street is back for it's 25th year! Leave your white shirts at home, my friends, it's bound to get messy. Starting today, June 14th to June 18th, Ottawa RibFest on Sparks Street will be serving delicious ribs from all over North America. Nope, not just Canada. See? This is why you can't miss it!
From states such as Kentucky, Texas, Florida, Michigan, New Mexico, Alabama, South Carolina, as well as places all around Ontario, your mouth will be so happy during RibFest. If you've never been before, and ribs aren't your favourite, you'll be pleased to know they don't only sell ribs.
RibFest also serves chicken, potato on a stick with all different kinds of cool ketchup, roasted corn, donuts, blooming onions, and drinks like lemonade and Butterbeer for all the Harry Potter lovers out there. Yum!
