RE: 49th WOODVILLE CHICKEN BARBEQUE
WOODVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA – With disappointment, the Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors wishes to advise supporters that the Woodville Chicken Barbeque will be postponed until 2021. This difficult decision was made due to rising concerns around the potential spread of COVID-19 in our communities and a desire to support the Province of Nova Scotia in promoting social distancing.
The Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors thanks the 150+ dedicated volunteers who ensure the success of the event every year and thousands of people who support the event. The Board looks forward to welcoming you all to our community in 2021.
About the Barbeque
The Annual Woodville Chicken Barbeque is held on Apple Blossom Sunday each year hosted at Boates Orchards. The 3600 Half Chickens are barbequed over an open pit with our special BBQ Sauce and then served with Potato Salad, Coleslaw, Pickles, Roll, Honey and a glass of Boates Apple Cider. Picnic tables are spread throughout the orchard and if the timing is right, the Apple Blossoms are beautiful.
The Barbeque is truly a community event that takes a community effort. It is the major fundraising event of the year. Proceeds support all community activities throughout the year and keeps the Community Centre active.
“Woodville occupies its place in the fertile Annapolis Valley, nestling into the North Mountain and providing a home for about 200 people. A landscape of orchards, pastures, cultivated fields and well-kept homes may be what one first notices, but Woodville is also a vibrant active community of citizens who have discovered how to support each other, have fun, who know how to work together.” – Jim Morton, Former MLA, Kings North in support of Woodville’s Lieutenant Governor’s Community Spirit Award nomination.
