Walter Baker Park in Kanata will host Ribfest from September 10-13, 2015. (Note the change of dates – originally it was scheduled for September 17-20.)
The event is being organized by Les Gagne, a former executive director of the Sparks Street Business Improvement Association. Sparks Street has hosted their own popular Ribfest event for years.
This event will be the second of two Ribfest events Gagne is putting together. Another one will run at City Hall from July 3-August 3. Gagne also organized an independent poutine festival at Ottawa City Hall earlier this month.
