Want to show off your or your kid’s talents? Participate in the first annual “RIBFEST IDOL”. The contest is open to everybody under 18 and will be judged in three categories: 5 and under, 6-12 and 13-18. You can submit your video audition on the website at http://cornwallribfest.com/ribfestidol. Three finalists will be selected to perform at Cornwall Ribfest on July 26 and the Winners will get to perform the National Anthem at the Opening Ceremonies later that day.
How about entertainment?
As usual, the week-end will be filled with live entertainment that promises to shake, rattle and roll! The main music headliners are a Taylor Swift Tribute for Thursday, Absolute Journey on Friday, Capital Beatles and Carl Dixon sings the Guess Who on Saturday and Practically Petty/ Tom Petty and Road Apples/Tragically Hip on Sunday. In the mix, many bands from all over the area, the midway and a new vendors area for farmers and artisans. In the main circle, you will find all your favourites such as the Blooming Onions, Twisted Taters, Mini Donuts and Fried Mars Bars. And of course, RIBS!
So mark your calendars! Ribfest lands on the 26-27-28-29 of July. Take the week off and come party with us!
