Our favourite summer event, the Similkameen BBQ King Competition, is happening on July 6th at the iconic Grist Mill & Gardens in Keremeos. Tickets sell out every year and for good reason- imagine grazing outside tasting award-winning wines along side unique dishes made from all organic, local ingredients.
Tops chefs from across the Okanagan compete to see who will make the crowd favourite dish. They each are given a basket of the same ingredients- which are all local and organic from farms in the area- and they must come up with a unique small bite. Guests graze and sample each item, which are all paired with local wines from the Similkameen Valley. Then, each guest will have an opportunity to cast their vote for the Peoples’ Choice Award and at the end of the evening, a chef will be awarded King or Queen!
Along with the incredible wine and food grazing, there is fantastic entertainment including the talented Aidan Mayes and Mandy Cole, a local Penticton country, rock, folk duo.
Early bird tickets are on sale now until June 30th. Be sure to purchase them here before they sell out!
