Changes Announced For This Year's Windsor Rib Fest

A popular summer festival has new organizers as well as a date change.

Victor Anast and Justin Brown with "Northern Heat Rib Series" are taking over the Windsor Rib Fest.

Anast says the event is usually held in August but this year, it will take place in early June.

He says the event will feature seven ribbers from North America.

Anast says despite the date change, they're still expecting a large turn out.

"People response really well to events at the beginning of the season, it's the kick off to bar-be-que.  We have seven of the top ribbers in North America coming.  We even have last year's defending champion, Kentucky Smokehouse returning and we're expecting about 15,000 plus people over the three days," says Anast.      

The event will take place at the Riverfront Festival Plaza from June 2nd to June 4th.

Canada's Biggest Party organized the event for the past few years.
