Gabriola Island Events – 60th Annual Salmon BBQ
August 8, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15
Do you love salmon? Get your fix for the summer then at the Annual Salmon BBQ on Gabriola Island, now on its 60th year of running!
This event takes place at the community hall, and it’s not just any BBQ – it’s also the island community hall’s annual fundraiser. Families and friends come together from the community to create all the dishes for people to enjoy – potato salad, bean salad, pickled beets, buns, watermelon, and of course, the scrumptious barbecued wild salmon.
This event has grown over the years to become a mini music festival also, showcasing musicians both professional and amateur, rising and established stars. You can also drop by the beer garden under a maple tree, or check out the raffle filled with great gifts and island services, all donated from local businesses.
