If the response to the first Ribfest in Belleville is any indication, 2008 will be a break out year for the Big Brothers Big Sisters. Eight major "Ribbers" provided old fashion Barbeque ribs (with closely guarded secret sauces) to the estimated 12000 to 14000 Rib lovin visitors to West Zwicks. The carnival atmosphere, beverage tent, craft vendors,...more

Our first trip to this new Steak and Seafood restaurant was an experience that deserves many trips back. Although not a place one would go all the time, as it would take away the specialness, it lends itself well to an evening out and fine dining with friends. I have been here on three occasions, once for lunch, and have not been disapointed. Wayne...more

It is very tempting for some to walk the ICE BOOMS located on the Moira River that runs through the center of Belleville. PLEASE , DON"T ~ as it is very dangerous.Since ice fishing is a popular sport in The Quinte Area as well as ice-skating, care and knowledge is to the benefit of the newcomer and old to assure that accidents of falling thru the...more
I really am quite ashamed to admit that our Quinte Exhibition ( Fair) is a REAL RIP-OFF, as far as I'm concerned. It costs too much to even get admittance into the grounds, never mind the cost of the games and rides for Kids,Students and Adults. Our Craft Barns and Livestock Barns are certainly NOT what they used to be-- IN FACT, any smaller towns in the surrounding area would be far more beneficial to you to visit than ours.
Fun Alternatives: One of our small town fairs in the Quinte Region would be a real HOOT for you to attend as the Picton Fair is awesome as well as Picton's Street Dances.

If one veers off the main road from the Quinte Mall onto Riverside Park Road, park your car in one of the available gravel lots AND take a walk on the trails. There are picnic tables available throughout in case you'd like to bring a lunch or just a resting spot. These walkways are in and thru-out Riverside Park.more
