For 100 years, the Vernon Elks Lodge has played an integral part in serving our community and this year … we are hosting Vernon’s RibFest!  This is a volunteer (200+) driven family festival that offers something for everyone.  There are four professional ribbers coming, as well as local food vendors.

What’s a Ribber?

A Ribber is a professional chef that specializes in preparing grilled foods. A Ribber most often works with meat, however his or her job can also involve working with a wide variety other foods and vegetables.  A ribber’s job requires highly specialized culinary training.
