The three-day event opened on Friday and runs until Sunday evening, as five rib trucks attempt to best each other and be named the crowd favourite.

Each BBQ station has several trophies on display from past events for customers to look at as they wait in line.

The event is free to enter and along with the rib vendors are numerous food trucks, live entertainment and a kids zone.

Adjacent to all the food options is a 19+ beverage garden in the middle of the event grounds, and near the entrance are various local vendors to browse.

"Supporting Ribfest isn't just about coming out to spend the day enjoying great food, drink and live entertainment; you are also supporting dozens of small local businesses,” said Christina Ferreira, owner of Impact Events + Brand Management.
