Destination Osoyoos did not provide a reason the weekend was cancelled. The organizer of the event, Ribfest Canada, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Vegan crowd’s hurt feelings. No doubt.

There were protesters???? Were they vegans protesting the eating of meat, cause if that's the case they should stand outside my house daily.

Or, it is economically not feasible because people don’t show up.

They would rather sit in their basement and complain about a past or upcoming VeganFest.

That doesn't explain the secrecy.

Perhaps they don’t want to admit failure? But, this is just guesswork and I have zero idea.

Cancelled cuz no grillers made any money last year. Hard to have a rib fest without the cooks. No one wanted to show up for this tiny venue when there are plenty of other places to be on the circuit.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

Probably because they were serving only Craft Beer (Swill) at the Beer Garden

Oh lord.......I really hate when that happens too. I applaud the micro brew industry for their entrepreneurship, hope for their success, but honestly have to say that there are very few that I can drink more than "one glass" of.
Am not a beer snob either. It is my bevy of choice. But some of the swill coming out of these places is truly disgusting and IMHO, just experimentation and ego from people with more money than beer brewing experience.

Can the Okanagan handle two Ribfests in the same month ?
Maybe Osoyoos felt their event would Pale ale by comparison to Pentictons big show

on that note, where does one buy a pro-meat t-shirt?
