This year, count down to the Thanksgiving long weekend by taking in the Okanagan Fall Wine Festival while staying at a Best Western Kelowna Hotel. With more than 165 events spread out over the 10 days leading up to turkey day, it’s no mystery why the Okanagan Fall Wine Festival has been listed in the American Business Association’s Top 100 Events in North America.
Just a quick drive from the Best Western Kelowna hotel, check out some of these signature events:
With 250 wines from 60 local wineries and a live band, you can let your appreciation for wine soar as you indulge your senses in a wine-filled evening hosted by WestJet. See the festival website for listings.
On Oct. 8, grab a blindfold and a buddy and take turns guessing the local wine and cheese pairings. Prizes will be awarded for not only the best guesses, but the worst.
On Oct. 9, watch as young chefs battle it out for top spots when creating a cheesy dish best paired with local wines. Taste each dish accompanied by a glass of your favourite wine and vote for your favourite next top chef.
On Oct. 9, brush up on your cheese and wine education and impress your friends. This interactive educational experience will have you sharing your newfound expertise on British Columbian organic wine and cheeses in no time.
