Calling out for "Celebrity" judges -  Toronto Ribfest is looking for "celebrity" judges for Best Chicken (on Sunday), Best Pulled Pork (Monday), and Best Ribs / Best Sauce (Canada Day).  Live from the big north stage, the celebrity judging will be a fun, interactive attraction each day at around 4pm.  Judges sample all 16 Ribbers and score each of them based on a variety of taste and texture categories.  "Celebrities" can be any recognizable person from a media / sports / culinary background.  What a great way to align yourself with one of Toronto`s favourite charity fundraisers and have a great time at the festival.  (And, if you're not a "celebrity", but want a spot on the stage with the other judges - we'll be auctioning off up to three spots to the highest bidder, with all proceeds going to help school food programs.)


Heroes Day – Monday, June 30. Celebrating the heroes in our lives. With special appearances from the Canadian Navy.

Canada Day - Tuesday, July 1. A Citizenship Ceremony to start, and Fireworks to close the festival. Doesn`t get any better than that!
