What’s Ribfest About?

We are all about family, community, volunteers, kids, participation, and fun!

A weekend of BBQ ribs, local entertainment, craft beer, cider and wine, free kid’s activities, local arts, and vendors.

Outside operating costs, all proceeds raised by the Esquimalt Ribfest are returned to the community through the Esquimalt Firefighters Charitable Foundation and the Esquimalt Ribfest Society. Funds go to local charities and school-sponsored activities for our community’s youth.

Esquimalt Ribfest has six professional rib teams that compete to win the coveted Peoples’ Choice. Live music by our best local bands, crafts brews, wine, and cider. Free children’s crafts and activities.

Esquimalt Field of Dreams

Our project is to provide Esquimalt with an all-weather playing field. Esquimalt is the only core Municipality without an all-weather playing surface or turf field. Our kids have to leave the community for outdoor field activities for as long as three or four months every year as our Municipal fields close.

It includes lights for year-round use, grandstand for large events, a field house for change rooms, washrooms and meeting area.

This overall project will be in the realm of $7M, a lofty undertaking completed in stages as funds allow.
