The Rotary Club of Etobicoke invites you to kick off the summer at our 18th annual Toronto Ribfest. This year will truly be a very special moment for all of us as the Canada Day weekend takes on an atmosphere of even greater excitement for our country's 150th birthday. Our program attractions will include a reaffirmation ceremony featuring comedian StandUp Ali (Ali Hassan) and Toronto Maple Leafs anthem singer Martina Ortiz-Luis, a Heroes Days recognition of our city's dedicated emergency personnel, great musical entertainment, celebrity food judging, a citizenship induction ceremony, Canadian heritage events, special activities for kids, a spectacular fireworks show on July 1st, and plenty of refreshing drinks and delicious food including, of course, the tastiest ribs from 13 of North America's best rib cookers!
Toronto Ribfest is the major fundraising activity for Rotary Etobicoke, generating more than $3 million over the past 17 years that has been put back into our community and supported selected programs in other parts of the world. The success of this event is dependent on the hard work of Rotarians and hundreds of volunteers from the community. In addition, we rely on support from sponsors and a broad range of community partners.
Come and celebrate with us. Let’s mark our country's milestone in fine fashion and make an even greater contribution to our community in the days ahead!
