The Saturna Island Lamb Barbeque is a joyous celebration of Canada Day, centred around a traditionally prepared open fire barbequed lamb meal. Remember the ‘good old days?’ Our BBQ has an old-fashioned country fair flavour that kids and adults enjoy. Our community has hosted the Saturna Lamb Barbeque since July 1st 1950 when it began as a school picnic on the Campbell’s farm at Saturna Beach.

It is with great sadness and reluctance that the Saturna Community Club announces the cancellation of the 2020 Saturna Lamb Barbeque due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
