Savour #CambridgeRibfest




At #CambridgeRibfest we value our community. We know it might not be the reason you come, but giving back and being as socially responsible as we can is just the right thing to do.


We’ve implemented several programs over the history of the festival to support and give back to our community.



The Food Bank of Waterloo Region logo

We collect for Rotary Cambridge Sunrise at the gate in lieu of admission.  Rotary may also collect at the parking lots, 50/50 draws and other fundraising. 100% of all funds collected go directly to Rotary Cambridge Sunrise.

In 2016, #KWRibfest, implemented a Green Waste initiative to reduce our waste while increasing our waste diversion through recycling and composting. We will be doing the same in #CambridgeRibfest with the goal to divert 90% of all waste by 2025. Help us to continue to reduce waste and Go Green.

Bike Check Logo


This FREE Bike Valet area is operated by Grand River Cycles and allows you to leave your bike in a safe and secure area while you enjoy #CambridgeRibfest. Bike Valet will be located beside the event space for easy access.


Remember, it is illegal to drink and bike, so please bike responsibly.

The Water Tap - Hydrate Responsibly



Hydration Station. As part of #CambridgeRibfest efforts to reduce waste, we are partnering with The Water Tap to provide safe, filtered drinking water at no charge to you. So, bring your reusable water bottle and fill it often to stay hydrated.
