Recap: Rib Fest Protests



ARRoc protested at Rochester’s worst festival, the Roc City Rib Fest, on May 26th and 29th.  Thank you to Mary for organizing both, and to Krista, Graham, Leanne, Robyn, and Varun for coming out.

On Monday, Mary and Leanne went inside (for free thanks to a friend of Mary’s working the gate), and Mary said it was very depressing inside: “Everybody was just sitting around, a band was playing, and no one was dancing.”


It was especially welcome that a few passers-by took the time to do something nice, like stop by and offer verbal support, take that photo at the top, or one man brought a bag of water bottles.

The Monday protest was followed by our very own vegan ribfest.  It looks lovely!
