We know you’ve been missing community events. We have too. We know the event industry as a whole will not look the same as it used to for some time and we’re keenly aware of how many people, businesses, charities, vendors, artists, staff etc. have been and will continue to be impacted.

While we've been sad we can't gather in the way we usually would for #KWRibfest, we’re VERY excited to announce we'll be bringing KWRibfest to you Drive-Thru style! We'll be hosting the Downtown Kitchener Ribfest Drive-Thru August 15 & 16 from 11am-7pm at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium. Donations for the Food Bank of Waterloo Region (of cash or non-perishable items) will be accepted, so please help us to support our local food bank and come ready with a donation.

Get ready for the saucy goodness you love, while we also stay safely socially distanced.

August 15-16
