Festival of the Grape - Celebrating 20 years!
Located in the Wine Capital of Canada, Oliver BC, The Festival of the Grape is a very popular annual event, attracting an estimated 3,500 attendees who come to taste the various wines that are on display, enjoy the music played on the grandstand, and either compete in, or watch competitors in the Grape Stomp. In addition to the wine tasting, music listening, kids zone and grape stomping, local artisans also display their crafts in the Art Gallery.
Hot and Spicy Louisiana inspired Roots & Blues
Take the rhythm of the Maritime Acadian music, season well with Louisiana zydeco blues, add a twist of Highway 61 era Dylan, serve it up with great showmanship, and you’ve got a potent musical cocktail that will have your head spinning and your feet dancing!
