To get there from the QEW, go north on Trafalgar Rd. and Sheridan is 3 blocks up. There is also parking at the Oakville Town Hall at 1225 Trafalgar road as well as in Church parking lots. There is a free shuttle bus from Town Hall to the Ribfest.
Be sure to bring enough cash, because the rib vendors don’t like credit cards. In case you run out, there will be ATMs on location.
Proceeds go to the Rotary Club of Oakville. This year over 30,000 visitors will be expected. Come on down and have some ribs and visit with friends old and new.

The location is on the actual Oakville Sheridan College campus on Trafalgar Road.
