The BBQ Eats Fest Starts THIS Friday until Sunday!

Here Is Everything You Need To Know

Wondering about what The BBQ EATS is all about? Picture a bunch of chefs battling it out cooking amazing dishes for a chance to win $10,000! I am so excited to try different types of foods and eat. My 7 year old carnivore daughter is super excited too. Don’t eat meat? There are vegetarian options.

How Does It Work?
It is not mandatory, but I recommend getting your Free Admission Tickets online. It gets you in the park at opening time, bypasses the Admission line faster.

Here is where you can sign up for the free tickets:

Ontario Place: West Island (955 Lakeshore Blvd. West)

Parking Cost
The cost of parking is $25 for the day. The event is also TTC accessible for your convenience.

Closed Parking Lot
Lot #1 is situated right under a set of stairs which leads you right to the bridge.

The BBQ Eats Festival has a FREE shuttle bus to and from The Exhibition GO Station! This runs every ten minutes.

While entrance admission and the stage entertainment are free, there are some costs. Here are the costs so your family can budget wisely for the weekend.

The BBQ Eats Festival runs on tickets.
When you arrive, you will purchase your tickets. It’s $15 for your first 10 tickets and then $10 for 10 tickets after that. Your paying family member will receive a stamp after the first 10 tickets, so they can get the $10 for 10 for any purchases after this. The tickets will be your “money” for the event.

There will be stations all throughout the event where you can get tickets.
There is an unadvertised ticket booth to the right of the Entertain Kids On A Dime Building. This is for families to purchase tickets without waiting in large lines.

Food Costs range from on average from 2-9 tickets depending on the size and type of Food you buy.
