Barbecue anyone? Saturday and Sunday, Eau Claire Market will host Canada’s oldest barbecue competition — the Alberta BBQ Championships.

Barbecue championships started more than 20 years ago in the United States. Now, they are found in nearly 500 cities across Canada and the United States. The BBQ On The Bow Society wants all Calgarians to get in some of those last sunny summer days at the grill.

There will be free live local bands, song and dance, paired with great grilling for families, and fun activities for the kids downtown. Free parking on Sunday at Eau Claire Market 101-3rd St.
