Saturday October 5th & Sunday October 6th- Festival of the Grape in Oliver

An all day family event - with something for everyone, including the kids!  The main focus of the festival is, of course, wine. More than 30 wineries will be in attendance, all eager to please your palate with varietals from their cellars. However, the festival is much more than just wine. The festival will have many different food vendors, merchandise vendors from local stores and boutiques, live entertainment, games, a grape stomp and everyone's favorite, Jerseyland Organics' cheeses.

It is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance to avoid the typically long lineups at the gate.  To purchase advance tickets, please call the South Okanagan Chamber of Commerce office at (866) 498-6321.
