Sudbury Ribfest – A Great Way to Spend the Long Weekend!

In Continental Connection by Continental StaffLeave a Comment

Stop by our Sudbury Ribfest booth, where we’re cooking up some seriously sizzlin’ savings!

That’s right! The Downtown Sudbury Ribfest is happening throughout Labour day weekend (August 31st to September 2nd) in the Sudbury Arena parking lot. Come by Friday and Saturday between 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM and Sunday between 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM for live music, craft vendors, games, a car and motorcycle show, great food, and, of course, six professional rib teams competing for the “People’s Choice” title and honour.

The six competing rib teams are Texas Rangers BBQ, Jack the Ribber, Crabby’s BBQ Shack, Smokehouse Bandits, Ribs Royale BBQ, and Boss Hogs Smokin Chophouse. There’s also awards for “Best Ribs,” “Best Chicken,” and “Best Sauce.” Make sure to keep an eye out for “Mr. Pig” trophies displayed by previous winners. If you’re not sure which ribs to try, picking a previous winner is probably a safe option (but really, they’re all pretty great)!

We’ll be there!

As a proud member of the Sudbury community, Continental will have a booth at Ribfest with a giant Jenga game for everyone to play, free swag, and a chance to win a gift card to Mr. Prime Rib. Sudbury is our most northern branch and we love our home in Northern Ontario! We are always excited to participate in community events (especially when there’s great food and a Lynyrd Skynryd tribute band involved)!

Be sure to swing by and grab FREE VIP Cards while they last. Once you have that, you’ll get better rates on all currencies at our Sudbury (or any) branch. We’ll also be offering discount coupons to the early birds among you, so don’t miss out!

A Good Cause

This year, Ribfest is happening in support of the Sudbury YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. Strong Kids is an initiative that supports the access of all the Y’s services and programs regardless of a family’s financial circumstance. We could not be happier to be a small part of a great initiative.

The ‘After-party’

Once you’ve grabbed your ribs on Saturday night, bring your lawn chair to Memorial Park for Free Movie Night Under the Stars at 9:00 PM to watch The Karate Kid. We can’t think of a better “dinner and a movie” date night or family night combo!

We hope to see you there!
