The Great Okanagan Beer Festival is back in our gorgeous home base of Kelowna, BC, Canada from May 10th to 12th 2018! It’s hosted by the fun folks at Gibbons Whistler, founders of the insanely popular Whistler Village Beer Festival.
In addition to hundreds of world class wineries, Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley are becoming a top notch destination for beer lovers as well. There’s already tons of fun things to do in Kelowna with the family but the Great Okanagan Spring Festival is a festival for the above majority age crowd.
You’ll find some of our local favorite breweries and restaurants at the Festival, like the Train Station Pub, Grimm’s Fine Foods, BNA Brewing, Tree Brewing, Freddy’s Brewpub, Okanagan Spring, Boundary Brewing Company, BC Tree Fruits Cider Co., Wards Hard Cider, plus plenty of other great craft beer and cider brewers from all across Canada.
The Great Okanagan Beer Festival main tasting event is on May 12th, and they’ve invited us to cover the main event at Waterfront Park, as well as some of the fun extracurricular events happening around town leading up to the main event.
It’s our first year at the GOBF, and we’re pretty excited to take in all the fun (plus all that tasty food, beer and cider!).
Love your beer? Do like us and check out a Kelowna Craft Brewery tour in the days leading up to the Festival, and follow along on Twitter and Instagram stories to check out our Pregame Brunch from Grimm’s Fine Foods starting at 11:00 am May 12th at the the Train Station Pub.
The GOBF features 70 breweries, plus 140 varieties of craft beer and cider, and plenty of tasty food trucks, games and more. There are also four live bands for the May 12 main event, plus a DJ.
We’re especially excited as they’ve given us two general admission tickets to give away!
