There’s more than just ribs to enjoy at the Port Moody Rotary RIBFEST! From live entertainment to family friendly activities, your weekend plans just got exciting.


RIBFEST is open from 11am – 9pm on all three days (Friday, July 19 – Sunday, July 21).


Portable washrooms with hand washing & sanitization stations are available within the Ribfest park.

Cash Machines

ATM cash machines are available onsite. It is recommended to bring cash with you to avoid line-ups.

Beer Garden

Instead of a beer garden we now have a site-wide liquor license that allows you to drink anywhere within the Ribfest park.

If you want to drink please bring your driver’s license or another government issued ID with your photo and birthdate.


The whole Ribfest park is family-friendly. The Family Zone is open from 11am – 5pm on all three days. Children must be supervised by a parent or guardian while in the Family Zone.

Dogs and other pets

We love dogs (and not just hotdogs)! But unfortunately no pets are allowed at Ribfest. Service animals are exempt from this rule. 

Security and Lost & Found

Security will be checking bags at the two entrances to the Ribfest park and will also have a large presence throughout the event. The Port Moody Police Department will also be onsite throughout the three days.

If you lose an item or find an item, please bring it to the Volunteer’s Tent which is also the Lost & Found.


Please dress for the weather. There are multiple tents to allow you to get out of the sun, but we still highly recommend bringing hats, sunglasses, jackets and sunscreen.

To ensure a safe event for everyone attending, please leave the following items at home:

  • Tents, tarps and wagons
  • Weapons or anything that could be considered to be one including knives of any kind
  • Frisbees or balls
  • Pets with the exception of working service dogs
  • Flags, signs or banners
  • BBQs
  • Musical instruments
  • Alcohol
  • All smoking and vaping products
