Great Okanagan Beer Festival

BEER AT THE LAKE • MAY 12-14, 2016

Nestled on the beautiful beaches of Okanagan Lake and right in the heart of the city of Kelowna, Waterfront Park,  40 breweries will come together, pouring beers from across North America and the World. The Great Okanagan Beer Festival will be a 3 day festival, offering patrons a mix of exclusive cask events, beer and brewing seminars, and a beer sampling main event.  At the main event, on Saturday, May 14th, 2016, we’ll be pouring for an estimated 3,000 beer drinkers and celebrating the unity of water, hops, yeast and malt.

WHO IS THE CHARACTER ON OUR LOGO?

That would be the famous Ogopogo, the legendary monster that lives in Okanagan Lake. This mythical creature dates back over 100 years to the stories of the Interior Salish Native people. We’ve recently heard he’s a beer fan so be sure to keep an eye out while you’re sipping yours…
