Have you heard…..

For 99 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.

What is a Ribber Contest? 

Local media sponsors are invited to participate in the ‘Ribber Contest’.  They provide their own special recipe for BBQ sauce to compete with and during the completion they BBQ ribs that are judged by the professional Ribbers.  The winner receives a trophy and bragging rights.
