We are listening to Dr. Bonnie Henry, the Province of BC, and the Government of Canada recommendations closely and following their advisories. We are currently working with the City of Kelowna to explore an alternative date in September for the Great Okanagan Beer Festival, presented by The Train Station Pub.

Our top priority is the safety of the community, all of our partners, and our guests and we will keep you informed as we move forward through each stage of this pandemic as well as our planning phases Thank you again for your patience and your support during this time.
