THIS WILL BE THE LARGEST CHILI AND BBQ CONTEST IN CANADA
WITH OVER $15,000 IN CASH AND PRIZES
HOW CAN YOU BEAT THAT FOR THE LOWEST COMPETITION ENTRY FEE OF $99
This is all made possible by the support of our amazing sponsors!
This is a family friendly festival and samples of the teams delicious Chili and BBQ are available to the public. Visitors arrive on-site and are greeted by our team of firefighter volunteers and given a wristband and a sample of chili on Saturday and a pulled pork sandwich on Sunday.
A donation to the Burn Fund, typically $5, is suggested when receiving the wristband. The public can then wander the site and sample the foods prepared by any team after each turn-in -while supplies last! All monies raised from wristband sales as well as a portion of team registration fees are donated to the charity we support. In honour and in memory of firefighter and Canadian Festival founder, Dave Veljacic, we support The BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund. In the past few years over $35,000 has been raised for this charity.
The two-day Festival includes both Chili and BBQ Competitions
