Evergreen Asado BBQ 40 Hot Chefs | 10 Blazing Fires | 1 Sizzling Night

Presenting Sponsor

Get fired up for the biggest, tastiest barbecue party of the season on September 26! Asado is a South American style barbecue where friends and family gather to grill, drink and celebrate the local bounty. Dine alfresco on farm-fresh ingredients prepared with authentic South American flare, then join the carnival to dance the night away.

From first spark to last glowing ember, there’s no shortage of food, fun and flames at Evergreen’s Asado BBQ Fundraiser supporting greener, healthier cities.


True Asadors master their grill with flare and finesse.

For one night only, watch 40 Ontario chefs tame the flame to bring you all the smoke and sizzle of South American cuisine. See top chefs Brad Long, Steve Gonzalez and others grill up a bounty of local meat, fish and vegetables over dramatic open-air parilla barbecues.

Ignite Your Appetite

At Asado, fire is the ultimate flavour enhancer, so whether you’re a die-hard carnivore, veteran vegetarian or fall somewhere in-between, we’ve got you covered.

You’ll enjoy Ontario farm-fresh ingredients transformed with sizzling South American flare—from smokey flank steak spiced with chimichurri to cheesy empanadas and seared summer vegetables. Each dish is expertly-paired with local beer, wine or a refreshing and authentic craft cocktail.

Savour it all with no line-ups or drink tickets required!

Fire Up the Fun

Fan the flames in a vibrant carnival atmosphere where you can dance the Zamaba and Tango under the stars, or compete for bragging rights in the Asado World Cup—an epic foosball tournament that will crown one team champion before the end of the evening.

From a farmhouse getaway with six of your friends, to an epicurean adventure in your own kitchen, place your bids at the Asado silent and live auction for your chance to win unique culinary experiences, relaxing getaways and once-in-a-lifetime adventures.
