Family Friendly Chili & BBQ Festival May 2 & 3, 2020 at Kwantlen Polytechnic University – Langley, British Columbia

Langley will be smokin’ hot again this year when the 33rd annual Canadian Festival of Chili and Barbecue comes back to beautiful downtown Langley, British Columbia with a NEW HOME at  Kwantlen Polytechnic University. On Saturday we host The Canadian International CASI Chili Championships and on Sunday The BC BBQ Championships. With two days of tasty fun for the whole family, this is the oldest and largest Chili and BBQ contest in Canada and the Pacific Northwest.

This festival traditionally boasts over $15,000 in cash and prizes! All at the lowest competition entry fees anywhere. This is made possible by the support of our amazing sponsors, certified judges, competition teams and volunteers.

BBQ & Chili Samples Available

Samples of the competition teams’ delicious Chili and BBQ are available to the public following each turnin for judging. *WHILE SUPPLIES LAST*

When visitors arrive on site they are greeted by our team of fire fighter volunteers. Visitors can receive a sampling wristband and a bowl of Firehouse Chili on Saturday or a sampling wristband and a Pumper Pulled Pork sandwich on Sunday from the fire fighters for a donation of $5 at minimum. Cooking demonstrations and vendors are also near the entry point. We are committed to the enjoyment and memories created by outdoor family fun.

All Festival Proceeds Donated

A donation to the Burn Fund at the entrance to our venue, $5 at minimum, entitles you to receive a sampling wristband. The public can then wander around the Festival and sample chili and BBQ prepared by teams 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 fire fighter and Canadian Festival founder, Dave Veljacic, we support The BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund and in particular their annual  Young Burn Survivors Camp. All these young campers come from right here in BC and in the past several years over $60,000 has been raised for this charity.
