Thunder Bay's Ribfest is back on the menu for summer 2023.

But this year's version — which is scheduled for late August — will be bigger than ever, organizers say.

This year's Ribfest will again take place at the CLE grounds, and will include local and out-of-town ribbers (Daytona's, Ribs Royale, and Dinosaur Smokehouse), a beer garden, live music, children's activities, an online 50/50 draw, and local artisans.

And the event is once again a fundraiser for Thunder Bay's Our Kids Count.
