All Festival Proceeds Donated

All public money goes directly to The BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund and is directed to the Young Burn Survivors Camp. This is in honour and in memory of fire fighter and Canadian Festival founder Dave Veljacic and his wife Patsy. To date we have donated in excess of $60,000 to the fund.

All Canadian Festival Producers and organizers are volunteers. We have no paid staff and we operate under the umbrella of our registered Society, The  Canadian Chili and BBQ Society.
