Is the Ribfest Site accessible?

Located at Memorial Park, the site does include pathways and natural grass. It does have sloping entrances at the sidewalks, parking for permitted vehicles and there are washroom facilities in the Arena and Library to accommodate.

Are there volunteer opportunities?

We couldn’t make the Amacon Mississauga Rotary Ribfest the success it is every year without the help of our amazing volunteers. Each year, some 300-450 generous souls sign up and turn out to help us at the Rotary Clubs of Mississauga and Mississauga West with our biggest annual fundraiser. Together we raise thousands of dollars that’s given right back to the community to support youth programs, people in need, and humanitarian causes.
