About Loyalist City RibFest

Loyalist City RibFest was started in 2015 at Exhibition Park when touring pit masters (Ribbers) wanted to put on an event in Saint John. The Saint John Y Men’s Club were lucky enough to connect with the Ribbers and have become the hosts, and primary charitable beneficiary of the event.

The Saint John Y’s Men’s Club was chartered at the YMCA on January 23, 1925. Since it was chartered, the club has been providing a valuable service to the YMCA in Saint John and the community as a whole by raising funds to support many worthwhile community groups, organizations and individuals.

The club’s principle fundraising activities include the Real Atlantic Home Show, catering, and now the Loyalist City RibFest.
