Ribfest’s Artisan Alley & Community Marketplace a shopping mecca

Oakville – Great food and amazing music aren’t the only reasons you should head to The Co-operator’s Oakville Family Ribfest at Sheridan College, June 20th to 22nd, 2014. The Ribfest is organized by the Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar.

Kick off your summer by browsing through dozens of booths representing local businesses, charities and community groups. Oakville has always been rated one of the top places to live and work in Canada, and not just because of awesome shopping and entertainment. Whether you’re new to town or a long-time resident, we’re willing to wager you’ll learn something new about the Town you call home when you visit the Oakville Family Ribfest.

Ribfest’s Artisan Alley & Community Marketplace area is set against the backdrop of Sheridan College, an internationally recognized mecca for the arts. You’ll find everything from original art and jewelry; luxurious handmade fashion and decor from India and award-winning sauces; to the best cell phones and data plans; alternative pain therapies; men’s, ladies and kids’ clothing; toys and much more.

Stock up on soccer merchandise to cheer on your favorite team in the World Cup. See how good your posture is and what effect it could be having on your overall health.
