Introducing North America’s First Halal Ribfest at Toronto’s Downsview Park.

Toronto is nothing short of multicultural. With over 250 ethnicities represented in the region, diversity weaves itself into every aspect of the city’s life. Tradition, values, and lifestyles from all over the world mesh together to create a cultural mosaic unlike any other. To celebrate the city’s uniqueness while being inclusive of the Muslim consumer – numbered at just over 424,900 – Torontonians will be able to celebrate North America’s first-ever Halal Ribfest this summer.

100% Halal Mode
In an authentic “halal” experience, the festival will exclusively serve 100% Halal meat from verified suppliers while avoiding products containing pork and alcohol. Visitors will have the chance to enjoy cuisines from all over the world, from South Asian, African to Middle Eastern, and more.

Guests can enjoy dishes from chefs and grillmasters from around the world while strolling down the lineup of the GTA’S most exotic cars, motorcycles, and classics that will be present during the car meet and Super Car show. A shopping market with vendors selling clothing, accessories, and gifts will also be available.
