Ten Reasons to Visit The Chilliwack BBQ and Corn Festival This Year

 

10 Reasons to Visit the Chilliwack BBQ & Corn Fest

  1. No Entry Fee

    Say what! Yah you heard me right, no entry fee.

  2. Live Bands

    Throughout both days of this two day event live local talent will be presenting.
    View the full live band schedule here.

  3. First Annual

    There is just something so exciting about saying that you went to the first one, don’t you agree?

  4. Ribs and Chicken Meals

    The mouth-watering description of these meals couldn’t be described better.
    “The Barbeque, featuring Johnston’s pulled pork and ribs and Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry organic chicken – both expertly-prepared and cooked by internationally renowned BBQ Master Rusty Johnson – as well as fresh caught Fair Trade sockeye salmon and traditional bannock prepared by Cheam Trading Post will be served each day from 11 am through 8 pm. The Ribs and Chicken meals will include baked beans, coleslaw and, of course fresh buttered corn-on-the-cob.”

  5. Roasted Chilliwack Corn on the Cob

    This is one of my personal favorites. Chilliwack is known for their exceptional corn on the cob, so make sure you don’t leave without trying some. Corn will be specially produced and prepared by Hofstede’s Country Barn. There will also be the option to buy corn and bring it home.

  6. Activities for Your Kids

    This event is intended for everyone of all ages to have a blast. They will have the kids entertainment covered with face painting, local airbrush artist, games, balloons and the extremely popular Ever After Princess Party.

  7. All about Local

    From the local live bands to the incredible locally made ribs, chicken, corn and more! This event is all about supporting local makers. I heard that they might even be offering local craft beverages and setting up a local marketplace. Talk about local!

  8. First Nations Dancers

    Enjoy a beautifully preformed dances that show expressions of the First Nations’ history and culture.

  9. Convenient Location

    Minutes from Hwy 1 and you can find the Chilliwack Prospera Centre (45323 Hodgins Ave). Make a fun family day of it and plan to visit Cultus Lake too!

  10. Because Honestly, what else are you going to be doing on July 29th & 30th anyways?!

    Need I say more? It’s free entry, all about local, and the whole family is going to have a good time. See you there!

I can’t wait to check out this event myself. Hope you all have a great time, remember sunscreen and your cellphones because we would love to see your experience on social media.

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.
•
For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
