Living Sky Casino and Dr. Noble Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation have teamed up to host Swift Current’s first-ever RIBFEST. The outdoor event will feature three international championship Ribbers - Prairie Smoke & Spice, Boss Hog’s BBQ and Gator BBQ over the three days. Prairie Smoke & Spice is Canada’s most decorated team with well over 160 awards including The Canadian National BBQ Championship and The Jack Daniels World Championship. The ribbers will be serving up a variety of southernstyle barbeque items including ribs, brisket and chicken.
While the ribs take centre stage, there is a whole lot more to RIBFEST. Families can enjoy the Robertson Rental Kid Zone with a bouncy castle and other inflatables, while the over 19 crowd can enjoy live music and cold drinks in the beverage gardens tent. Entertainment will include Bakersfield and The Steve Gibson Band on Friday, Megan Nash, Bears in Hazenmore and League of Wolves on Saturday and lastly, on Sunday, The Rockin’ 58s and Oral Fuentes Reggae Latin band. There is something for everyone throughout the weekend.
Ribfest will run Friday, August 3 from 4:00PM - 9:00PM
Saturday, August 4 from 12:00PM - 9:00PM
Sunday, August 5 from 12:00PM - 8:00PM
