A hot dog barbecue to raise money for the Chilliwack Pride Society is set for June 5.

The event, which takes place on Mill Street, will also celebrate the new pride banners which were installed by the City of Chilliwack on May 25. The banners were designed by Justin Mallard, Teri Westerby and Bon Graham.

The event is free and the hot dogs are by donation with a suggested donation of $3. There will be gluten-free and vegan versions available, as well as pop and water by donation. The barbecue will help the Chilliwack Pride Society reach its fundraising goal of $25,000.

Folks can also get their face painted and shop for Chilliwack Pride merchandise while listening to live music by Joe Matheson. The fundraiser takes place at the same time as the downtown Chilliwack farmers’ market so people can also get local produce.

The barbecue is on Sunday, June 5 and runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Mill Street in downtown Chilliwack.

The event is in partnership with the Downtown Chilliwack Community Market and the Chilliwack Dogwood Monarch Lions.
