Great Okanagan Beer Festival
BEER AT THE LAKE • 2017 EVENT DATE TBA
Nestled on the beautiful beaches of Okanagan Lake and right in the heart of the city of Kelowna, Waterfront Park, dozens of breweries will come together, pouring beers from across North America and the World. The Great Okanagan Beer Festival is an annual 3-day festival, offering patrons a mix of exclusive cask events, beer and brewing seminars, and a beer sampling main event, where we’ll be pouring for an estimated 3,000 beer drinkers and celebrating the unity of water, hops, yeast and malt. Stay tuned for more information on 2017’s event!
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…
Best in Fest
Other festivals give out cute medals. We give out draught contracts. That’s right, the top placing breweries as voted on by festival-goers win draught contracts with real, live venues in Whistler. Save the medals for a dusty brewery shelf, we’re focusing on real growth that benefits both the festival and its partners.
