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 Camp for Young Burn Survivors. All these young campers come from right here in BC and in the past several years over $45,000 has been raised for this charity.
