Anyone been to the Toronto Ribfest last year? Is it any good and are vip tickets worth it? Planning to go on a Saturday between noon -2 or 2-4pm with 2 young kids!
Don't think I'd bother with VIP tickets. These events happen all over Ontario and are a popular fundraiser usually run by Rotary Clubs. Numerous stands will be around, selling things like ribs, pulled pork, brisket, baked beans, corn, and various other carnival type treats. The prices are the same amongst all the vendors so go where the big lines to get the best though they're usually all good.
Thanks Nick, but I want to avoid the long line ups as I have 2 impatient kids! Does the vip help a lot on the line ups? Don’t want to be standing for an hour under hot sun!
I thought standing in line was like part of going to a ribfest. The lines do move, I don't think you be standing in line for an hour, maybe 20--30 mins. They also sell stuff like corn on the cob and those lines can be 5 mins or less. Get that first for the kids to eat and maybe it slow them down.
I would bring some bottle water or you have to go to another line for drinks.
No, lines are the same all around.
Remember to bring a few bucks for donations to Rotary and Rotaract it is all for a good cause.
