2013 Ontario RibFest Schedule – Over 50 Finger Licking Shows!

First off I have to apologize to every one for taking soooooo long to publish this years schedule.

The last 6 months Real life has taken it’s toll on me and I have been having to deal with some personal issues that has taken me away from my love for my hobby of talking BBQ.

I hope to get the time this summer to get back into BBQ though I may not get to as many events this season as I did last when I attended a record 18 events in Ontario.

I am rushing myself in posting this so there may be some mistakes along the way if there are I will update as soon as I find them. Any that you see please email me at oshawaogre@hotmail.com and I will update.

I need to give a big Shout-out to a huge BBQ fan named Justin in Eastern Ontario…

He is a 16 year old that loves BBQ and takes a huge interest in Ribfests, Justin emailed me soon after I posted this schedule to point out 6 changes that I needed to make including a couple of additions that I did not know about.

Thank-you buddy, I hope to get to meet you at an event this season :-)
