The Board of Directors of The Arc Community Advocates has decided to discontinue the Ribfest Marketplace tent. We are sorry for any inconvenience. Please refer to the link below for a comprehensive listing of opportunities to buy and sell artwork.
Ribfest is a three day event at the Arcadia Creek Festival Place in Downtown Kalamazoo. As one of the original festivals held downtown, Ribfest is now in its 30th year and attracts over 10,000 people each summer. Proceeds from the Kalamazoo Ribfest go to benefit the Arc Community Advocates who work with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to empower them to live a life that is fully included in the community, and advocate on their behalf.
