The Brantford Kinsmen Ribfest is a fun family community festival held in Brantford on August 4th – 8th, 2022.

We are looking for 50 volunteers to help out with tasks such as setting up, taking down, ground maintenance, drink servers greeters and selling raffle tickets. The hours are flexible; the event times vary, so you can choose to stay all day or for a few hour duration. The minimum age for volunteers is 14, and youth can use their Ribfest volunteer hours toward their required community service hours.

We are not necessarily looking for skilled volunteers, so it’s a great way for students looking for volunteer high school hours are welcomed. And for adults, it is perfect time to meet new people and participate in a community oriented event. Volunteer applications available on our website or contact the Volunteer Coordinator at

Brantford Kinsmen believes that all member of our community have the ability to help build the community in which they live, work and play in a way that is meaningful to them. Brantford Ribfest is a unique way for a volunteer to meet the needs of the community in a fun-filled family environment. Volunteers are the backbone of Brantford Ribfest and their contributions are essential to the continuation of festivals like Ribfest and a vibrant community.
