The festival normally takes place in Victoria Park in Clocktower Field, and allows patrons to enjoy ribs from renowned vendors.

The 2020 KW Ribfest is going ahead this year as a drive-thru at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium.

“Drive in, select the ribber you want, order, pay and receive your order, all while remaining in your vehicle,” the festival’s website advertises.

It’s scheduled to go ahead on Aug. 15 and 16 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
