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.

On a side note, this one piece bathing suit has become a favorite for wearing as a shirt. I love how it looks with some high waisted shorts.⠀

  • Oh July, you've been a wild month so far. We've started to move, Ezra broke his collarbone, Evelyn turned one and got her first tooth, I got some not awesome news (see two posts back), and we continue to slowly move. We still have our five year anniversary to celebrate. Talk about time flying and everything happening all at once.
