Sponsor Information

The Nanaimo Barbecue Festival is an incorporated company whose only focus is to create an event which brings community, families and local business together for a fun filled weekend to inspire good will and a chance to get to know one another.

This year we are trying to raise funds for the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation through pledges and entry fees for the Rib Eating contest. We want all our events to be enjoyed by all and a chance to show off our amazing city to those teams who will come from all over North America to compete.

We want Vancouver Island to be as passionate about this event as we are and want to partner up with businesses who feel the same.
