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.

  • Tuesday is one of our busiest mornings of the week. With breakfast, prepping lunch for Ezra, preschool snacks for Sophie and aiming to get all three dressed for their activities of the day there isn't a lot of me time. One thing I've learnt is that I need to make sure I am getting myself fuelled in the morning in order to be my best self and handle the morning rush with grace. I've been doing this two ways: 1. Eat an actual breakfast (not just the kids' scraps) and 2. Taking a minute to make a @nespresso.ca -- For those extra tired mornings I'll put in a Double Espresso capsule!

For those local that are interested in getting a @nespresso.ca machine for yourself, you will be able to shop in person at their new Boutique in Metrotown!
