Party like it's 2019!
Some people come to Ribfest for, well, the ribs. Others come for the delicious festival food - blooming onion or perogies, anyone? Me, I love the music.
It’s no stretch to say that the pandemic was tough on local artists – with no way to perform live, they were kind of in a holding pattern over the past two and a half years. So we were beyond excited to hear from so many of our past favourites who are ready to play again this year.
The talented Karen Thornton kicks off the festival at 2 p.m. on Friday, July 1. Once again, we have the 905 Band the headliners on Friday night, and Freedom Train, who are slated to take the stage on Saturday night. Waterdown’s own Ty Baynton will be closing out the festival on Sunday, starting at 6:30 p.m. In between, the park will be rocking to the sound of bands such as IN2U, Tattoos ‘n Whiskey, Dark Horse, Laurel & Hulley, Killin’ Time, to name a few.
As always, we owe huge thanks to the businesses who sponsor the entertainment – this year, it’s M & M Products and Imperial – this allows us to support local bands and keep the music playing.

See you at the park!
