At #KingstonRibfest we value our community. We know it might not be the reason you come, but giving back and being as socially responsible as we can is just the right thing to do.
We’ve implemented several programs over the history of the festival to support and give back to our community.
We collect for the Partners in Mission Food Bank at the gate in lieu of admission. In 2019, $3,863 and 1,477 lbs of food was raised. Since 2013, we have raised $22,280.65 and 14,654 lbs of food. Way to go #YGK! Pulling together to help our neighbours in a BIG way.
In 2020, #KingstonRibfest, is partnering with Minimal Waste Events and implementing a Green Management program to better reduce our waste while increasing our waste diversion through recycling and composting. Our goal is to divert over 70% of waste from landfill.
Help us to continue to reduce waste and Go Green.
#KingstonRibfest has been partnering with the Queen's Mens Basketball team since 2013. The team provides much needed volunteer support, and in exchange, #KingstonRibfest provides a financial donation to support the teams travel budget. A win win.
