Northumberland Ribfest is 10 years old!It has been an amazing 10 years since the Rotary Club of Cobourg launched the Northumberland Ribfest. Our ribbers, vendors, entertainers and sponsors have been phenomenal supporters but it's the folks who keep coming back year after year that really make it a huge success. The 10th Anniversary edition is going to be even better!

CBC and The Tragically Hip present, The Tragically Hip - A National CelebrationThis year we have another great weekend planned. We are very happy to announce that on Saturday evening we will be simulcasting CBC's presentation of The Tragically Hip A National Celebration. The show will be on the big screen in Victoria Park and is scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. Come down for the ribs and stay for the show!

Our headlline entertainment on Sunday will be ABBAmania and Night Fever. These artists will take you 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.
