Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country’s Festival of Trees is back — with the holiday splendour giving you four South Okanagan wineries to visit.
“This year we aim to have more than 2,500 visitors to the festival,” said Jennifer Busmann, OOWA’s executive director. “We’re certain that with continued community support in Oliver and Osoyoos Wine Country, the event will build awareness and support for the BC Children’s Hospital and the South Okanagan Children’s Charity.”
The Festival is open to the public, which is invited to browse through the holiday displays at four locations this year and enjoy the holiday splendour.
Trees will be on display at Nk’Mip Cellars Winery, Black Hills Estate Winery, Oliver Twist Estate Winery and Tinhorn Creek Winery.
There is no charge for admission, although a minimum $2 donation is encouraged. BC Children’s Hospital will issue tax-receipts for donations of more than $25.
“Everyone should come out and vote for their favourite tree,” said Ms. Busmann.
