SPONSORING THE CAPITAL BBQ FESTIVAL

This is a 4th year event, which is heavily focused on engaging the community.  We will have BBQ Vendors, Food Trucks, Bands, Beverage Patio, BBQ Demos, Kids Zone as well as Craft vendors.  At the heart of the festival are 4 International BBQ Competitions.

Admission to this event is free with a $2 donation to our charities.  Our charities are TELUS Ride For Dad and the Barrhaven Food Cupboard and each receive half of the gate proceeds.

We are expecting to see at least 10K visitors.  This is our first year at this venue (Clarke Fields Park, where the Barrhaven Canada Day celebrations are held).  Engaging the community is extremely important to me, and we have the following attractions/activities to offer the general public:
