Labour Day BBQ

EDLC Labour Day BBQ for the Unemployed and Underemployed

Monday, September 5, 2016

The Edmonton and District Labour Council will be holding its 27th Annual Labour Day Barbecue for the Unemployed and Underemployed this year on Monday September 5, 2016 at Giovanni Caboto Park from 11:30 AM –3:30 p.m. They need your help!
“The EDLC Labour Day BBQ is significant in many ways. It provides those less fortunate with an afternoon of free food and entertainment and in 2015 over 4,000 people attended. The barbeque is also an opportunity for employed workers to share with those who have not been as fortunate in gaining or keeping adequate employment. Given the economic reality of the day we are expecting a large turnout in 2016. In recent years we have expanded the BBQ by including more family orientated aspects to the day including, bouncy castles, face painting, kids crafts, free books and as always live music.
We are seeking volunteers to help us put on the BBQ. We have many areas that we will need help including, food preparation, set-up and tear down, kids activities, park cleanup, unloading of supplies and other general duties. In order that the BBQ functions smoothly we ask that all volunteers signup prior to arriving at the park to have a clear understanding of the numbers of expected volunteers.

Please go to for the volunteer sign up page.
