Some craft vendors at Burlington’s RibFest are not happy and want their money back.
Sherry Anderson of Oakville has started a petition saying she and about three dozen other vendors were moved to a new location, far away from the ribs, and that greatly reduced their traffic and profits.
She says they were not told in advance of the move and want their thousand dollar rental fee back.
Ribfest Co-Chair John Thorpe says that is not the case.
He says the vendors were told, in writing, months ago about the change of location for this year’s event.
Thorpe says the change came about to expand the entertainment stage and make way for corporate sponsors.
