Unbuckled, Vancouvers Ultimate Backyard BBQ, is coming once again to Stanley Parks Brockton Oval Baseball Diamond on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016. With the capacity increased to 2,500 and the experience of year one under our belt buckles, Unbuckled is going to be bigger and bolder than before.

All tickets come with an awesome BBQ pack including a free brew, smokie (veggie options available), and freezie (must arrive before 5pm to claim the BBQ pack). A very limited number of these tickets are available! 

Brought by WetApe 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 1:00pm until dusk (9:00pm) on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016, the Brockton Baseball Diamond will get Dixie fried, down home, and fully countrified.

Where urbane meets rhinestone, Unbuckled is The Social where everyone is encouraged to sport their best hillbilly outfits: tanks and Daisy Dukes, overalls and cowboy hats, big bad bold buckles, boots and heels, and, of course, the sexiest cuts in plaid finery.

And there's nothing like a little friendly country style sports competition where participants can sign up teams of 8-15 people and win unique prizes, including the Champion Unbuckled Belt Buckles for the top teams. The three Unbuckled Team Tournaments are:

Frontier Digs: Giddy up! We invite all y'all to wrangle a crew of gals n' gents to be pioneers at Unbuckled with your very own Yard: A unsettled plot of 15×15 grass, furnished with the bare necessities just waitin' for you to turn it into your very own frontier digs. Be sure to bring your own decorations to complete your homestead before you kick up your boots, unbuckle, and hit the town.

Hillbilly Hustle: Classic backyard challenges that test yer speed,skill, and teamwork abilities: potato sack race, wheelbarrow race, five legged race and egg on a spoon.

Guests will also be able to participate in Unbuckled games WITHOUT signing up a team. Some of the games to be held on the day include:

King of the Rodeo: Yee-haw! Get on, hold on, and stay on the mechanical bull!

Last Man Dancing: We'll teach y'all the steps, then gradually up the ante by speeding up the music to test yer skill.

Tarnation Toss: Teams of two heave their water balloons back and forth the furthest without making a splash.

And many more!

Over the course of the 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 potatoes, cup-a-corn, and popsicles, and refresh with their beverage of choice anywhere at the fully licensed site.

Please note: Participation in any of the events or tournaments at Unbuckled is NOT MANDATORY, and you are more than welcome to come along and simply kick your boots up, enjoy some traditional southern grub and drinks, and soak up the sun.
