Oakville Family Ribfest – 2012, 2013

The first annual Oakville Family Ribfest was held June 22 – 24, 2012.

Oakville Family Ribfest, June 22-24, 2012

This new Rotary Festival was held the same weekend the old Waterfront Festival was always previously held – the second to last in June.

Cupcakes joined this new event’s lineup – as although I live and bake in Aberfoyle, I grew up in Oakville and attended high school there until moving to attend the University of Guelph.

In 2012 we served up a wide selection of great summertime cupcake flavours to many excited festival go’ers. Favourites included Margarita Lime and Pink Lemonade. Many of whom from Oakville and surrounding area who had never attended a Ribfest-style event before. With the neighbouring Burlington Ribfest, the largest in Canada, right next door – it was time for the families of Oakville to have an event of their own.

We had a great weekend in June, with hot temperatures and bright sun – the first annual Oakville Family Ribfest was deemed a success by the organizers!
