BC Egg Fest is a must-attend event for barbecue fans, but get your tickets early, as another sold-out event is expected!

Fire up the grill: Let the (Big Green) Egg Fest begin!

Chilliwack’s favourite all-you-can-eat barbecue festival returns May 26

While you won’t find actual “eggs” starring in the BC Egg Fest, you will find an all-you-can-eat barbecue festival filled with amazing food and plenty of fun with eggs of the “Big Green” variety!

Egg Fest is the annual gathering and barbecue festival showcasing the versatile Big Green Egg charcoal cooker – a grill, a smoker and oven all in one – and yes, it looks like a big, green ceramic egg. Built to last with double-wall construction, it’s easy to adjust for temperature and fuel-efficiency. And if there’s one thing that “Eggheads” love – other than grilling – it’s gathering to talk about their Eggs and what they create with them!

Hosted by GP Home Furniture & Appliances May 26, some 17 barbecue teams of both talented home cooks and competition teams from across the province will showcase their grill skill, says organizer Brandy Schmidt.

“We’ve dubbed this year’s theme ‘Bring on the Meat Sweats,’ but we’ll have a vegetarian team this year too,” says Schmidt, who loves the versatility and flavour the Eggs offer – and that they’re so easy to clean.

“It’s really changed the barbecue game. You can really wow people with all you can do with it!”

Firing up their Eggs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., cooks will share specialty recipes, tips and cooking techniques. You’ll also find four entertaining and informative seminars that will get you cooking in no time, and great deals on Egg accessories.

Get your tickets today!

Whether you’re already an “Egghead,” simply want to enjoy great food, or learn about the possibilities of owning the “world’s best smoker and grill,” this is a must-attend event.

And while organizers have reconfigured the site to accommodate more guests, don’t wait too long to get your tickets online or in the store as they’re expected to sell out again.

Your $30 taster ticket offers unlimited barbecue sampling, with children under 12 just $5. And if you’re buying one of the GP Home Furniture’s demo eggs – always a hot commodity – you’ll get a taster admission free!

Plan your egg-citing day

You’ll likely want to skip that big breakfast in preparation for the tasting to come:

11 a.m. – Let BC Egg Fest begin! Wander from egg to egg to sample foods and discuss recipes and techniques (the head to bceggfest.com after the event to download some of your favourites recipes for free.) Eggs will be shut down at 3 p.m. to allow them time to cool down.

3:30 p.m. – Raffle draw

4 to 5 p.m.– If you purchase a demo egg, it must be picked up by 5 p.m.
