Queen City Ribfest delayed due to Thursday’s storm

Those planning on putting their bibs on and heading to Evraz Place this weekend for the first-ever Queen City Ribfest may be out of luck due to Thursday’s storm.

If the event does take place, you will be able to sample some dishes whether it be pork, beef or chicken as the best in southern barbecue will be on hand.

“Expect great flavours with a unique experience.” Reinhardt said Thursday morning. “People can come and enjoy what they want.  Menus are on our website so people can check out what barbecuer they want to support.  You can try one, two or try them all.  You can stay in your car and eat, you can go home and eat or you can go into Confederation Park and chow down.

Carmichael Outreach is the event’s charity partner.  Carmichael is glad to have a chance to be a part of a fundraiser seeing they haven’t been able to do many fundraisers because of COVID.

“We weren’t able to run a golf tournament last year or this year because of the pandemic.” Carmichael spokesperson Nick Faye said. “We are certainly thankful for the opportunity and hope Reginans will support not only the event but Carmichael as well.  We will have people onsite accepting donations and we think there will be a lot of cars rolling through.”

While organizers say Ribfest can not start as planned Friday afternoon, it is hoped it can run Saturday and Sunday starting at 11 a.m each day.
