Annual L’Arche Comox Valley Pig Roast adjusts to the times

2020 event will be a ‘Pig Roast Picnic Take-away.’ Tickets on sale now.


It’s that time again! L’Arche Comox Valley invites you to their Pig Roast Picnic Take-away, a COVID—friendly option to our annual Pig Roast. The generous folks at Pickled Carrot Catering have offered to prepare some of their famous BBQ pulled pork and slow-smoked baked beans. Top it off with crunchy coleslaw and a dessert surprise and you have an amazing take-out dinner for Saturday, September 26.

Boxes for two ($50) or four ($100) people can be ordered by phone from the L’Arche office at 250-334-8320 any time until Sept. 24. But don’t wait – boxes are already selling and there’s a limit to how many we can offer for pick-up!

How will it all work? You can purchase your box over the phone – pay by credit card or arrange to drop off cash or a cheque. The day before the event, we’ll contact you with a pick-up time. Just show up at the I Belong Centre in Courtenay at your designated time and our special Welcome team will herald your arrival with cheers and noisemakers. And while you wait for your box to be delivered to your car, enjoy the music of Fiddlejam, who will be performing on the front lawn!

This the 10th year for this feel-good, fundraising event and we are so happy to be able to go ahead despite the challenges of the times. So purchase a box and support L’Arche Comox Valley and the developmental disability community!

L’Arche Comox Valley is a community of people with and without disabilities, sharing life together and celebrating the unique value of each person. FMI larchecomoxvalley.org or visit the I Belong Centre at 1465 Grieve Avenue in Courtenay.
