A great food lineup for Virtual Ribfest

It’s hard to believe, but it’s just ONE WEEK until Waterdown’s first-ever Virtual Ribfest! I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready for a backyard barbecue party. And what makes a great summer bash? Food. Friends (in person if it’s safe, online if it’s not). Food. Music. Did I mention food?

When we decided to plan a “virtual” event, we wanted to create something for people to look forward to after months of social isolation, something to make them feel like things are almost “normal.” Of course, nothing is more social than sharing delicious summer food. But without the park, the food trucks, the ribbers and our beer tent, we didn’t exactly have a head start this year.

So, we reached invited local restaurants to help us create a backyard barbecue party to chase away the pandemic blues – and eight of them stepped up. We are thrilled that some of our favourites (and yours too, I’m betting) are on the menu. Even better: By ordering from our Virtual Ribfest partners, you will be giving them a much-needed boost as they struggle to emerge from months of economic challenges. I count that as a win all the way around!

To make selecting your Virtual Ribfest menu a bit easier, here is a breakdown of the details we have on what each partner is offering and their ordering information and deadlines:
