Transportation & Parking

The Rotary Club of Port Perry is proud to bring back Ribfest to our community again this summer! The event takes place in downtown Port Perry, in beautiful Palmer Park on Lake Scugog.  We also have a Kid’s Zone – Carinval Rides, Heavenly Dreams Ice Cream, Face painting and more!

In order to assist us with staging this festival (and accommodating all the attendees), we have been working in cooperation with the Township of Scugog for the use of Palmer Park, parking lots and adjoining streets. Some of these public spaces will be temporarily closed for our event, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We appreciate your understanding and support.

Please note the following temporary closures:

Please note that public access to the Marina Pier, Children’s Playground and Splash Pad in Palmer Park will be maintained throughout the event.

Parking and the Ribfest Shuttle

Walk, swim, ride your bike or come by boat to our event.

We are also asking our visitors coming by car to park for free in our Event Parking lot at the Scugog Community Recreation Centre (Arena) , located at 1655 Reach St, Port Perry.  Ribfest will be operating a free Shuttle on the hour and half hour from these event parking lot right to the the Ribfest front door! (Note the shuttle operates only during Ribfest hours).

Limited accessible parking is available downtown on Mary Street, near Water Street right in front of our main entrance to Ribfest.
