Porkapalooza BBQ Festival June 15 – 16, 2009 at Edmonton Expo Centre

Porkapalooza BBQ Festival is back for another Father’s Day Weekend in Edmonton. From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, June 15 to Sunday, June 16, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the Edmonton Expo Centre will play host to the annual event, showcasing the culture of BBQ.  Cheer on your favourite competitors and enjoy that great BBQ smell as teams from western Canada compete for over $16,000 in prizes.

At its heart, it is a BBQ competition, but it encompasses all the components of a festival: good BBQ eatin’, a beer garden, the Taste Alberta food demonstration stage, a Kids’ Zone and plenty of entertainment.


The festival is free for anyone to attend and includes plenty of activities for families and food lovers to enjoy. Guests are invited to check out guided tours of the competition area, cooking demonstrations from professional chefs at our food stage and a play area and craft station in our Kids’ Zone.
