The Oliver Fall Festival event committee has announced that The Trews will launch the three-day weekend festivities with the new Kick-Off Party at District Wine Village on Friday.
“To have such an iconic Canadian band kick off the Oliver Fall Festival this year is a dream come true,” Ian Lobb, Executive Director of the Oliver Tourism Association said in a press release.
“If you have not yet been to a concert at District Wine Village, this is an amazing chance to celebrate the harvest season in style while enjoying an array of artisan beverages, delicious food truck favourites and dancing to the iconic music of The Trews.”
To give attendees the option to enjoy libations throughout the festivities in a safe and fun manner, the Oliver Fall Festival experience, Oliver Tourism has partnered with Grape Savvy Wine Tours to provide transportation to and from all signature events in their beautifully restored Trolleys.
Shuttles will be running from Penticton and Osoyoos Friday through Sunday for guests, who can book tickets for their preferred departure times for desired events online at trolleyco.ca
“We are thrilled to be working with Savannah and the team at Grape Savvy Wine Tours to provide guests with a fun and unique transportation option to get to and from the festival this year,” Danielle Hutton, Chairman of the Fall Festival Committee and Vice Chair of the Oliver Tourism Association said.
“With more than 45 wine, beer and spirit producers and 38 merchants participating in the Festival this year, we definitely want to ensure all guests have the chance to sip and savour their favourites safely.”
