6th Annual Kingston BBQ Competition Raising Money for Joe’s M.I.L.L.

in Releases by

Like most Canadians, when the summer weather finally arrives we want to spend as little time inside as possible. One of the most popular outdoor recreational past-times has always been gathering family and friends for a good ol’ BBQ!

This year for the 6th year in a row Friendly Fires will be hosting the Kingston BBQ Competition, a fun-filled event that pits BBQ teams against each other to determine who has the ‘Best Ribs in Kingston’!   Grand prize is a fantastic pellet fired smoker for Green Mountain Grills.

The Kingston BBQ Competition is not only for the competitors though. Friendly Fires has a range of activities for all members of the family including a bouncy castle for the little ones, food and great deals for the adults, and live music for everyone.

Once again this year proceeds will go to Joe’s M.I.L.L., the wonderful and unique music instrument lending library which provides a wonderful service in fostering musicians of all ages by lending free instruments to learn on.

The competition starts at 10am on July 7th at Friendly Fires in Kingston, 271 Dalton Ave. Drop in anytime for some great food, music, and to help out a great cause.  We’ll see you there!


The Joe Chithalen Musical Instrument Lending Library (Joe’s MILL) is a registered charity operating in Kingston.  According to its website, the library has over 1000 instruments and resources including guitars, keyboards, drums, horns, violins, percussion, amplifiers, exotic instruments, sheet music, and much more – and they’re all available to borrow … free of charge.

Their  lending and teaching programs sustain music appreciation, knowledge, community enrichment and provide opportunities for youth and adults to meet their full potential.
