Rhythm ‘n Ribs 2018 will be held July 27, 28, 29 and once again will be held on the Gallagher Centre grounds in Yorkton. The same great format will be followed as last year, but there are several improvements, new additions and extended hours for this year. 

"Last year was the first year for Rhythm ‘n Ribs, and it went about as well as we could hope,” said Ross Fisher, Executive Director of The Health Foundation. “People came out in really large numbers to try the food and listen to the music; and they also gave us ideas for how to improve the weekend. We listened to that advice and made some changes.” 

What’s new for Rhythm ‘n Ribs: 

  • Demo Days: FFun Motorsports will have a variety of Can-Am side by sides and ATVs on display for you to look at and take for a test drive;
  • Bike Run: Ramsay’s Health & Fitness is sponsoring a bike run and poker derby on Saturday July 27, to raise funds. The bike run will end at Rhythm ‘n Ribs at 5 pm;
  • Amateur BBQ Competition: We are moving this competition more into the open grounds and inviting backyard BBQers who think they smoke or grill great ribs to enter the competition 
  • Kids Day: On Sunday from 12:00 to 4:00 there will be bouncy castles, laser tag and mini golf for kids of all ages to enjoy, sponsored by RBC;
  • Show & Shine: On Sunday from 11:00 to 2:00 the Yorkton Antique Auto Club will have cars on display;
  • Extended Hours: This year hours are extended and we will go to 11:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; Sunday we close at 8:00 p.m. As we are going an hour later we have increased the number of bands. The beer garden hours are extended as well: until 11:00 on Friday and Saturday and until 8:00 p.m. on Sunday;
  • More Food Vendors: In addition to the professional BBQ vendors we are going to have Mexican food and fries and poutine. There will also be a lemonade stand, corn on the cob, a popcorn stand and ice cream.

Admission is still free, although we will be accepting donations at the gate. No outside food or beverage will be allowed on the grounds.
