Northumberland Ribfest is 10 years old!What an amazing weekend we had this year for the Northumberland Ribfest & Music Festival. The weather was near perfect. Our ribbers, vendors, entertainers and sponsors came through for us again and we had some of the largest crowds ever!

CBC and The Tragically Hip present, The Tragically Hip - A National CelebrationOn the Saturday evening we hosted the simulcast of CBC's presentation of The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration. More than 4,200 people joined us in Victoria Park for this once-in-a-lifetime event. We are so proud to have been a part of this historic event. We wish Gord Downie and his family peace and tranquility as they deal with his brain cancer.

Our headlline entertainment on Sunday was ABBAmania and Night Fever. These artists took us back to the 70's and 80's when ABBA and the Bee Gees defined pop music.

ABBAmaniaABBAmania has been delighting audiences of all ages since it’s formation in 1999, selling out theatres in the UK, USA, Canada and touring the world, now with more than 3,000 live concerts in over 30 countries.

Night FeverNight Fever, is the largest tribute production of the Bee Gees in the world.

This all Canadian cast has been touring for the past ten years, from Disneyland to Russia, recreating the look and sound of the Bee Gees.

Join us again in Cobourg's beautiful Victoria Park August 18th to 20th for the 2017 Northumberland Ribfest & Music Festival. Planning is already well underway.

Check out the great line-up of entertainers we had this year in the historic Victoria Park Band Shell.
