It’s time to get grilling. Montreal is hosting another exciting food festival this August that is sure to fire up your taste buds. People of all ages are invited to Barbecue Bonanza on August 23rd to experience the grilling techniques of assorted cuisines from around the world. Held by the Clock Tower in Montreal’s scenic Old Port, this event promises to be an exciting daylong celebration filled with food and fun.

The event not only hopes to expose festival-goers to the various styles of grilling, but also to raise funds for the Starlight Children’s Foundation Quebec. For over 20 years the charitable foundation has offered support to children facing prolonged illnesses and their families. The foundation’s website explains: “Starlight helps bring the pure joy of being a kid back into the lives of sick children and their families. From brief getaways to in-hospital fun, we offer a much-needed escape from the daily rigors of treatment and a chance to be like any other family.”
