Saturday, September 10, 2016, 1PM – 9:30PM
Brockton Baseball Diamond, Stanley Park, Vancouver

Unbuckled. Sunshine gleaming on summer skin. September fields, crisp and harvest fresh. Refreshing, ice cold drinks and the slow sizzle of the barbeque. Big hitters and hot heartbreakers. A grand ole Saturday in the park. Let your hair down, kick up your boots, loosen up and get Unbuckled.

Brought to Stanley Park by Wet Ape Productions and (the team behind Harvest Haus, Keloha, and Center of Gravity), Vancouver’s Ultimate Backyard BBQ will combine casual sporting competitions, picnic eats and drinks, alt-country and bluegrass rhythms, and plenty of good times all in the heart of the city. From 1PM until (9:30 pm) on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016, the Brockton Baseball Diamond will get Dixie fried, down home, and fully countrified. It’s an escape to an unpretentious community gathering, replete with hay bales, pickup trucks, burlap galore, picnic blankets, and plenty of southern comfort.

Put on your Southern best or take us to Hazzard County with plaid, tank tops, and Daisy Dukes shorts. Feeling more Chuck Norris? Make Walker Texas Ranger proud with your best cowboy hat, boots, and outrageous belt buckle. In addition, there are a in a variety of games to compete in including Pioneer Pong, King of the Rodeo, and Hillbilly Hustle to win unique prizes including the Champion Unbuckled Belt Buckles. Those who’d rather catch the action from the sidelines are free to do so as well. 

Over the course of this hard playin’ day, live bluegrass and roots rock will belt out the soundtrack, along with costumed hosts running the activities and making sure everyone gets the solid gold treatment and real southern comfort, which wouldn’t be complete without rib tickling BBQ and thirst-quenching beverages. Guests can indulge in pulled pork, beef brisket, baby back ribs, BBQ beans, corn bread, baked potatos, cup-a-corn, and popsicles, and refresh with their beverage of choice anywhere at the fully licensed site.

Please note: Participation in the games or tournaments is not mandatory. Unbuckled caters for everybody, whether you want to get involved in the action or prefer soaking up the sun and enjoying the action from the sidelines.
