Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 edition of Ottawa Ribfest on Sparks Street is cancelled.
Can I bring my ribs into a Sparks Street patio, pub, or restaurant?
Many do try to accommodate this, with the purchase of a beverage, but please check with the establishment first.
Where can I enjoy an alcoholic beverage?
Visit one of Sparks Street's amazing patios, pubs, or restaurants who will have full menu and drink lists available - late night too!
Is there a price of admission?
It's definitely FREE to come hang out and enjoy the festival, you just pay for what you eat.
Can I bring my dog(s), cat, lizard, parrot etc?
You sure can, on leash pets are welcome - but if you have a reactive pet in crowds, around children, or around other pets -we ask that you simply leave them to relax at home.
