Great Okanagan Beer Festival
Beer at the Lake
GOBF 2020 Update:
After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the 6th annual Great Okanagan Beer Festival, presented by The Train Station Pub to May 2021. Due to the ongoing risk of COVID-19 we will not be hosting the 2020 event at the end of summer as we had originally hoped, as the well-being of our guests, partners, and staff is our top priority. If you have purchased a ticket for the 2020 event your ticket will be automatically transferred to 2021.
We send all of you our love and support and we look forward to celebrating the love of beer with you in 2021. Until then we hope you stay safe and healthy. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out directly to us.
