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.

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount
  • 30! 🤭

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.

  • Every party I style I have this vision in my head and each time I have no idea if it's going to turn out, what looks like one day of styling is really a whole bunch of days (and lots of late nights) of planning. I've learnt a few things from when I first started styling parties and wanted to share my top tips for party planning.
NUMBER 1 - Don't do it alone. This specific party I had lots of help from @goldngrasses and @juliechristinephotography. Ask for help, styling tips, and have fun doing it with someone.
NUMBER 2 - Less is more. Focus on a few key food items and make them the focus. We used a whole lot of meat and cheese here and yummmmmy, it was good!
NUMBER 3 - The dollar store has everything a craft store has and more! Parties and pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive, mine as well save some $ where you can! •
If you are on the save money train and interested in checking out more ways to save (or perhaps even win something for free!!) head over to my friends at @irisvisualgroup and check out their 21 days of Christmas. They've got lots of tips, tricks and giveaways just for you. #sponsored #IRISvisualgroup

  • We got our new sled in the mail and Evelyn has been so into it! I decided we needed to go for a drive and find some snow and give it a try. It's safe to say she loved riding in our @rudolphesled and I can see many more joyful snow rides in the future.
•
Rudolphe just launched their sled line and it's perfect for little ones that could use a lift in the snow. There's a buckle to keep them securely seated and you can get a name personalized on the back, we had our last name engraved. Perfect for all your snowy adventures. #CWJWpartner #rudolphesled #rudolphe3000
