Halifax, Nova Scotia – March 22, 2022

 

8th Annual Harbourside Ribfest, Alderney Landing, Dartmouth, June 30, July 1,2 and 3, 2022!

 

The Rotary Club of Halifax Harbour is pleased to announce the return of Harbourside Ribfest to the Waterfront for the eighth year in a row (last 2 were delivery only), this time in a new location on the Dartmouth Waterfront – Alderney Landing. The event will host five unique rib trucks, exciting local vendors and tens of thousands of satisfied visitors. The popularity of this event benefits the entire community as all profit is utilized by the Rotary Club of Halifax Harbour to service many local and international charities. The date of this years event is June 30 and July 1,2 and 3.

 

The event has been extremely successful in raising over $500,000 for various charities over the past seven years, while satisfying an inherent demand for more successful events on the waterfront. We have hosted as many as 81,000 satisfied visitors over the weekend on the Halifax site, and are excited that the new location will allow easy access to our returning visitors, and an opportunity to entertain a new audience!

 

“We are thrilled that Ribfest is back, live, for another year”, says Andrew Bishop, Chair of the Harbourside Ribfest Committee. “We will be ramping up the entertainment, and moving to an established new location.  Once again, there is no entrance fee”.

 

The Rotary Club of Halifax Harbour is a vibrant Club of 60+ members, representing a broad range of backgrounds and professions.  The group is committed to charitable giving both locally and internationally; to personal and professional growth and development; and to having fun in everything we do.  The club is one of 35,000 worldwide. Some of the local projects the club works with include Joseph Howe Elementary Food Program and Souls Harbour. Further, we have done development projects in the Gambia, in addition to providing service and funds to several youth programs such as Interact Clubs and Youth Exchange.
