An all-new, experiential event is coming to Stanley Park in downtown Vancouver on Saturday, September 12.
Unbuckled, 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 2 p.m. until dusk (around 7:30 p.m.), 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, a western style bar and a very special hubcap collection.
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. There’s also nothing like a little friendly competition, and Unbuckled gives participants the chance to sign up teams of eight to 15 people to compete in a variety of games, including Footloose Foosball, King of the Rodeo and Hillbilly Hustle to win unique prizes including the Champion Unbuckled Belt Buckles.
Over the course of this hard playin’ day, live bluegrass and roots rock will belt out the soundtrack and the event be facilitated by costumed hosts making sure everyone gets the solid gold treatment and real southern comfort. The day wouldn’t be complete without a rib tickling BBQ and thirst-quenching beverages. Guests can indulge in beer-can chicken, smokies, corn-dogs, burgers, steaks, ribs, corn on the cob and watermelon and refresh with their beverage of choice anywhere at the fully licensed site. Leave the little cowpokes at home as this exciting new event is 19+ only.
A limited amount of Early Bird tickets for Unbuckled will go on sale on Friday, July 10, at 10 a.m. for only $25 each. Regular tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 17.
