Did you know...

Toronto Ribfest food and music festival is a fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Etobicoke. All proceeds raised go to local and international charities. Also …

Toronto Ribfest is run almost entirely by volunteers, who play a critical role in making it such a great festival!


  • The festival is open from 11 in the morning until 11 at night.

  • We run three shifts, most from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.; and 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. A few shifts start earlier, at 9:30 a.m.

  • We also need volunteers for two days of set up before the event and one day of tear down after the event.

  • Volunteers who work two shifts in a row get free food.

  • We can help volunteers on evening shifts get to their car/bus stop on request.

  • July 1 is our busiest day so we need lots of volunteers, especially for the last shift. Volunteers there for the last shift get a bonus Fireworks display!

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering at Toronto Ribfest earns community service credits. It can also provide valuable work and team experience and volunteers can earn letters of reference.
