Rhythm 'n Ribs is back the last weekend of July

Rhythm 'n Ribs is back at the Yorkton Exhibition Grounds July 26 to 28. Hours are:

  • Friday from 4 pm to 11 pm;
  • Saturday from 11.30 am to 11 pm;
  • Sunday from 11.30 am to 8 pm.


The weekend features continuous entertainment on stage, bringing a mix of country rock and classic rock to the festival. The music is provided by local groups and musicians, as well as headliners on Friday and Saturday night and early Sunday evening. 


Champion BBQ outfits from across Canada serve up a variety of southern-style barbeque, including favourites like ribs, brisket and chicken, accompanied by corn bread, coleslaw, baked beans and more. Other concessions will also be on the grounds.


Individual food items range in price from $5 to $30, depending on hunger level and taste. 

The Balloon Saloon Beer Garden sponsored by Re/Max Blue Chip Realty is open every day, serving up cold craft beef and traditional favourites. 


Amateur BBQ competition


The amateur BBQ competition, a popular success in the first two years, will be back again. Amateur teams compete against each other for prize money and bragging rights. 


This year a second category has been added, Chef's Choice, where the chef may create his favourite and enter it. There is no additional fee to enter Chef's Choice. Scroll down for the entry form if you are ready to test your skills against other amateurs.

Volunteers make it all possible

An event like this requires lots of volunteers to be a success, and to help raise money for The Health Foundation of East Central Saskatchewan. 


With government providing only a very small portion of the funds required to buy necessary equipment for our healthcare facilities, The Health Foundation is dedicated to raising the money needed to look after the healthcare needs of all of us in this part of the province. 


Volunteers help out in many ways:

  • Beer garden
  • Selling tickets for the beer garden
  • Selling 50/50 tickets
  • Security / gate crew
  • Clean up crew
  • Parking coordination
  • General set up Friday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm 


Volunteers are asked to work any of the following three to 3 1/2 hour shifts, and are provided with shirts that indicate they are volunteer assistants:

  • Friday: 3:30 to 7:00 and 7:00 to 10:00
  • Saturday: 9:30 to 1:00, 1:00 to 4:00, 4:00 to 7:00 and 7:00 to 10:00
  • Sunday: 10:30 to 2:00, 2:00 to 5:00 and 5:00 to 7:30
