The 7th Annual Similkameen BBQ King event will be held on Saturday, July 9th from 5-9pm at the historic Grist Mill & Gardens in Keremeos.

In this award-winning event, competing chefs will create unique dishes using organic ingredients from local farmers in the heart of Canada’s organic capital.  The format of the event has evolved to provide a relaxed and easy experience with time to enjoy each chef’s creation along with the spectacular Similkameen wines and ciders.  Once you have visited each station and enjoyed the culinary inspirations, it is time for you to cast your vote for the winner!

In addition to the amazing food and wine at this event, there will also be live entertainment by Aidan Mayes & Mandy Cole and a silent auction that is a partial fundraiser for the Grist Mill, which is a beautiful Heritage BC site.

Because of the support of our primary sponsor, Valley First, each guest will receive a beautiful wine glass to use throughout the event, and take home as a momento of the evening.

A beautiful sunny day, amazing food, award-winning wines and ciders from the members of the Similkameen Wineries Association, live entertainment, a gorgeous venue and a silent auction with fantastic prizes. What more could you ask for?

Early bird adult tickets are $80 if purchased by June 30, 2016. After that, adult ticket prices increase to $90. Youth and children tickets are also available.
