The Perth Rotary Club anticipated that the 2021 summer would see a positive change allowing community groups to begin holding modified events. However, the recent spike in variant cases and the uncertainty that this has caused has led to the decision that even our modified event needs to be cancelled.
We feel that the health and safety of the community is far more important.
We cannot risk having one patron or volunteer being contact traced to Ribfest.
The perth Rotary Club looks forward to hosting the Rotary Ribfest Music Festival in 2022.
The impact of this cancellation will be felt by the local groups that Perth Rotary supports financially: The Table, YAK Youth Services, Perth Firedawgs, Merrywood Easter Seal Comp, Lanark County Food Pantry, Lanark Highlands Youth Centre, Community Justice and the Perth Stingrays.
