Stomp grapes and be merry!

Canada’s Wine Capital is extra thrilled to welcome guests back to the Oliver Fall Festival after two years on pause.

From September 30 to October 2, 2022, the event will bring together breweries, wineries, distilleries, artisans, musicians and eateries together for three days of family-friendly fun.

“Our community could not be more excited to welcome everyone back to the Fall Festival this year,” remarks Danielle Hutton, chairman of the Fall Festival Committee and vice chair of the Oliver Tourism Association.

“This event means so much to our local businesses and we truly cannot wait to celebrate the harvest with locals and visitors alike, and showcase the bounty that our mighty little town has to offer.”

This year’s lineup includes signature festival events Cask & Keg and Festival of the Grape featuring the world-renowned Grape Stomp Competition, as well as exciting new events like the Amazing Oliver Race, Beer Olympics and the Kick-Off Party at District Wine Village featuring award-winning Canadian band The Trews.

“This year marks 25 years since the first Festival of the Grape and it has been amazing to see the festivities continue to grow each year,” says Ian Lobb, executive director of the Oliver Tourism Association.

“Throughout the weekend, guests will get to experience the very best that our region has to offer and also be treated to the musical stylings of award-winning Canadian musicians The Trews and the Randy Bachman Band Cease & Desist. I can’t think of a better way to welcome harvest in the Okanagan.”

Early bird tickets are available online now until August 15 with regular price tickets available until September 29.

Guests can purchase singular event tickets, a package to attend all three days of festivities or an exclusive VIP package to make the most of their festival weekend that includes priority access and seating for all signature events.
