Welcome! Toronto Ribfest, now in our 18th year, is a charitable fundraising event for the Rotary Club of Etobicoke.  We have raised over $3.5 million charitable dollars, supporting local charities and community organizations! We are delighted with your interest! Did you know that last year over 100,000 people came to Toronto Ribfest! With such large crowds, Ribfest also attracted a lot of media attention, from live reporting from CTV, CBC, CityTV and radio stations!

This inquiry form is intended for potential vendors who want to sell their goods at Toronto Ribfest. We receive a high number of inquiries from potential vendors wanting to exhibit and sell their goods for a limited number of spots. In an effort to be fair to all vendors we do not guarantee spots based on participation in previous years.

Who this form is intended for definitions:

Artisan Vendors and Charitable Organizations.
An Artisan is a vendor who wishes to SELL PRODUCTS THAT THEY HAVE MADE THEMSELVES. Examples of this can be, a potter selling handmade pottery or a jeweller designing and making their own jewellery. Charitable Organizations are Not For Profits or registered charities.

Local Commercial/Corporate

Marketplace booths must be operated by and vend products and services provided only by the approved applicant.  Third parties are not permitted to share booths and only approved applicants are permitted onsite. Two separate vendors may NOT share the same booth. Vendors must send a copy of proof of insurance certificates upon being accepted as an exhibitor at Toronto Ribfest and also provide a $500 refundable security deposit in addition to booth fees.

Please be advised that we will only respond to Merchandise Vendors who have been selected for participation.
