Fall Okanagan Wine Festival

Vine, dine, and wine! The Fall Okanagan Wine Festival is only a week away. Ten days of festivities that include over 160 events spread throughout the Valley. "Something for every pallet" as Blair Baldwin said during our interview at the Wild Apple last week. It was a fascinating interview by one of the Okanagan's wine ambassadors. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did. Discover some interesting facts and highlights about the only wine festival that is held during the harvest.
Your going to love the original name of the festival. It's a doozy!

I love creating songs, which have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years, I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, and others.

Originally from Scotland, I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years. My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities).

In 2014, I was elected to Kelowna City Council.
