2017 marks the 11th annual Northumberland Ribfest & Music Festival. Each year, the number of visitors gest bigger, the food gets better and the Rotary Club of Cobourg is able to do more in the community and abroad because of your support.

This year we have another great lineup of entertainment (stay tuned) and two headline acts.  On Friday night  Canada's Number One Rolling Stones Tribute Band, "Hot Rocks" will perform and on Sunday afternoon, "Green River", the Ultimate Creedence Clearwater Revival Tribute Show will take to the stage.

Hot Rocks - The Rolling Stones Tribute BandToronto-based Hot Rocks - The Rolling Stones Tribute Show - has it down pat... the music, the costumes, the show!

The band features lead singer Bob Wotherspoon, North America’s most look-alike Mick Jagger - and he truly "Moves Like Jagger"! Performing all of the Rolling Stones’ greatest hits along with his band who look and perform remarkably like their Rolling Stones counterparts in every way – Keith, Ronnie, Charlie and Bill. In their ten year career Hot Rocks have played across Canada and the U.S. and as far away as South America to audiences who say it’s the next best thing to seeing The Rolling Stones!

  

Green River - The Ultimate CCR Tribute ShowJoin us Sunday afternoon for Green River, the Ultimate CCR Tribute Show!

In the late 60's and early 70's, if you listened to rock music, you listened to Creedence Clearwater Revival. CCR's musical style encompassed the roots rock and swamp rock genres and is still a staple of rock radios stations today.

Do you remember Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary, Up Around the Bend or Have You Ever Seen The Rain? There is a good chance you'll hear these and all your CCR favourites (and a few John Fogerty tunes) when Green River takes to the stage for two sets, starting at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. You don't want to miss it!

Stay tuned for more information on the 2017 entertianment lineup
