Thousands Enjoy a Barbecue at the Barracks!

Posted On: 07/09/2019
The BBQ at the Barracks event on Johnnie Caine Way turned out to be a huge success with well over 1,000 people visiting the community to celebrate its proud history, award-winning show homes and the neighbourhood's FIFTH Award of Excellence win as greater Edmonton’s BEST community for 2019. 

Those attending the event enjoyed an incredible array of family-friendly activities, delicious barbecue fare and refreshments, spectacular show homes and special guided tours while riding in the back of a real military troop transport truck! 

The barbecue included tasty burgers marinated with Sweet Memphis Red BBQ sauce courtesy of JRRR BBQ, chips, sodas and other beverages. Line-ups were long most of the weekend and the food reviews were fantastic. The first 50 families showing up each day were rewarded with their very own Barbecue at the Barracks branded BBQ sauce compliments of Canada Lands Company. Thanks again to JRRR BBQ for supplying their delicious BBQ sauces. You can check them out at

Concept Homes also celebrated their 50th anniversary over the weekend and added to the fun by serving cake & coffee for guests touring their show home.

A kid’s bouncy castle and face painting proved to be a hit for smaller children and parents. A craft tent was also set up where kids could put their green thumbs to use as they designed and decorated personalized flower pots.  

Perhaps one of the most popular activities was the legacy tours. Guests enjoyed this amazing opportunity to experience the naturally beautiful surroundings of Village at Griesbach and receive the stories and history behind the community’s many beautiful legacy parks, historical monuments, military tributes and incredible amenities. 

Canada Lands Company would like to give a huge thank you to tour driver, Chris, for his service in reaching every part of the community and providing such a unique experience for guests. (Fun Fact: Chris also served with the 15 Service Battalion in Griesbach when it was a military base). 

Adults joined in on the fun as well, with many potential new homeowners crowding inside and touring the six master-crafted show homes on Johnnie Caine Way. The award-winning builders include Coventry Homes, Pacesetter Homes, Homes By Avi, Concept Homes and Impact Homes. If you missed out on the event, you can visit the six new show homes on Johnnie Caine Way every Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 8 pm and weekends from noon to 5 pm.

Show home visitors also had a chance to win either a Fantasy Land Hotel Getaway or a gift card package worth $300 by answering a community test question related to the history show cards placed in each of the show homes. If you haven’t entered the contest, there’s still time to go out to Village at Griesbach’s show homes and enter! The contest runs until July 31, 2019 so hurry before it’s too late! 

Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed the Barbecue at the Barracks event with us! It was a huge success and an exciting day for the community.
