Montreal To Host Quebec's Largest Rib Festival

Few cuisines say "summer" quite like barbecue, and as we all know, if there's one dish that trumps all others, it is the mighty BBQ Rib (sorry pulled pork). The literally finger-licking good food that simply loves to get your mouth messy.

There is truly nothing is better than delicious ribs cooked up on a hot grill, and come this June, we'll all be able to enjoy a whole festival entirely devoted to all-things-ribs. An event otherwise known as Le Grande Ribfest de Montréal 2016.

Hosted at Quai De L'horloge in Montreal's Old Port, the Ribfest de Montreal will be like a gigantic outdoor BBQ but with the entire city invited. Expect drink stands, grilled corn, carnival-esque games, and (obviously) amazing ribs to all be featured at the festival.

A culinary celebration not limited to Quebec, rib-makers and barbecuers from across Canada and the US, will be on-site at the festival, all of whom will be doling out their delicious eats and BBQ fare for you to feast upon. No doubt this makes for the largest rib-centric event of its kind in the province.

Entering its second year, Ribfest de Montreal will likely be bigger and better than ever, so start getting excited for even more wondrously delectable elements added to the 2016 edition. But even if nothing changes and the event is the exact same as last year, honestly, we'll still be happy, because Ribfest is utterly delicious. I have the barbecue-stained shirts to prove it.

On top of that, don't forget the fact that Ribfest is put on in collaboration with Poutinefest, which (hopefully) means poutines will be also be available on-site to compliment all the expertly-crafted BBQ meats. This is a Montreal food event, after all.

For more details and updates on Le Grande Ribfest de Montréal happening June 19 to July 1 (and there will be a lot more info as the date approaches), head over to the official Facebook event.

One always feels a sense of pride when their hometown makes its way onto an international ranking. And that's why we're proud to say two cities in Quebec, including Montreal, made it into Studee's "Top 10 Student Cities in the World."

To the surprise of many, Quebec City also made the Top 10 — and it ranked higher than Montreal, with Quebec City at #4 and Montreal at #6.
