Experience sun, food and fun this summer.

Just as one Montreal festival ends, another begins, and there's now word of a brand-new one being added to the lineup this summer that is sure to make your face and your belly smile! From the same good people that brought us the Lobster Clam Jam last month, along with Strangers in the Night, comes the first-ever BARBECUE BONANZA, happening at yet another one of the city's most iconic locations.

Raising money for the Quebec Starlight Children's Foundation, the Barbecue Bonanza will bring together some 26 Montreal restaurants to showcase the best in various cuisines from around the world. The outdoor grilling festival will feature plenty of fun in the sun, entertainment for all ages, and of course, amazing food! Not just for meat lovers either, as participating restaurants will also offer a smorgasbord of grilled, roasted and smoked fish, cheese, and vegetables to devour as well.

Each restaurant station will serve 2 different signature dishes and will be demonstrating cooking and food preparation techniques from over 22 countries using only the finest in local and international ingredients. There will also be a Bloody Caesar Bar, Vodka Bar, Beer Bar, a Wine Bar, Juice Bar, Coffee Bar and 4 Dessert sections to round out your all-day culinary experience.

Admission is $45 which includes 4 coupons or $65 including 9 coupons.  Any single beverage or food item will cost 1 coupon ($5) each, with some specialty items sold at 2 coupons ($10) for you big spenders. Extra coupons will be available for purchase on site. Buy your tickets here.
