Charcuterie dreams are made of this. On September 2nd, 2023, South Surrey’s Sheila’s Catering Co. will break the World Record for the longest Charcuterie Board ever at 500 feet!  Packed with all of the delightful meat, cheese, crackers and fruits you would expect from a top-notch charcuterie board, this epic board will run down the centre of the historic White Rock Pier. The public will be invited to purchase tickets and enjoy an afternoon of great food, beer, wine and a live entertainment zone in Memorial Park.

Charcuterie on the Pier, September 2 - White Rock, British Columbia

“The idea has been brewing with us since before the pandemic. We are so excited to share this one of a kind experience with White Rock and the surrounding community. The sheer reach of this event, with Guinness’ involvement, has the potential to touch millions, especially with the drone and video content we have planned for social media and the amazing backdrop of the pier and ocean.” Says Wes Levesque, owner and Director of Operations of Sheila’s Catering.

An Official Guinness representative will be onsite to adjudicate the entire attempt and all attendees will receive a certificate for participating in the world record breaking event.

Net proceeds from Charcuterie on the Pier will benefit Sources Food Banks, operated by Sources Community Resources Society (SOURCES). The organizer’s goal is to raise a minimum of $50,000 for charity.

Friends of the Pier, a White Rock charity benefiting from this event, was born out of the need to raise funds for repairing the White Rock Pier after a hurricane force storm severely damaged the famous wooden pier. Plans are now underway to replace the entire pier over the next two years, bringing it up to modern safety and design standards that will retain the historic feel of the original pier. The charcuterie boards that are used to break the Guinness World Record on September 2, 2023 will be auctioned off at the event, with all net proceeds from those sales going to Friends of the Pier.

And not to worry … they have a plan for the seagulls!
