Loyalist City Ribfest Is Changing Locations

If you are a barbecue lover and you live in the Saint John area you will be pleased to hear this.

The Loyalist City Ribfest is moving to the uptown area this June 14-17 for what's being called "Ribs on the Waterfront".

Organizer Peter Wilkins tells us they have partnered with Port Saint John to bring the event to Long Wharf for a variety of reasons.

"Hoping we will get a few more people from uptown, drop down at lunch time or after work," says Wilkins.

Wilkins also says it's hoped that "people taking in part of the night life of Saint John will take in the Ribfest."

It was originally held at Exhibition Park because of concerns over a lack of parking but it has now been determined there is actually more parking available for the new venue.

The Loyalist City Ribfest is a major fundraiser for the Saint John Y Service Club.
