Ladies and gentlemen, start your grills! The Similkameen is about to name a new Similkameen BBQ King! 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. This truly unique Similkameen wine and food experience is a competition where chefs compete for the coveted title of Similkameen BBQ King or Queen.
In this award-winning event, chefs will create unique dishes using organic ingredients from local farmers in the heart of Canada's organic capital. You will go from station to station enjoying the foods prepared by each chef, along with Similkameen wines and ciders. Once you have enjoyed the culinary creations from each chef, then 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. There will also be a silent auction that is a partial fundraiser for the Grist Mill, which is a 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 then that glass is yours to take home as a momento of the evening.
