The Co-operators Oakville Family Ribfest has something for everyone to do! Ribs, cold beer and live music are complemented by hours of fun for kids in the PlayZone and lots of great shopping in the Marketplace. Everything happens at Sheridan College’s Trafalgar Road Campus, so there is lots of parking.

2015 will see giant bouncy castles, robotics demonstrations, an obstacle course, visits from Disney characters Elsa from ‘Frozen’ and Cinderella, the return of the incredibly popular Kids’ Workshop by The Home Depot (where children can build a project to take home), set ups by the Oakville soccer and basketball clubs, and the creepy crawly friends of Safari Science.

New last year and with us again are a midway carnival with lots of rides and a ferris wheel, and the frantic fun of walking on water in the ever-popular ‘Water Balls’. Please note that the carnival and water balls require tickets, while all other activities are free of charge.
