Registration Deadline For Cask & Keg Is September 17th, 2021

The Cask & Keg Festival happening on October 2nd between 12:00 pm and 4:00pm will take place as part of the Wine Capital of Canada’s Fall Festival Weekend, which also includes a Kick off Party at the District on the opening night, October 1st from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at District Wine Village, as well as the Festival of the Grape which celebrates the wineries in the region on October 3rd from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. This year we expect to welcome more than 4,000 guests to the festival.

Cask & Keg Festival is a day-time adult only event brought to you by the Oliver Tourism Association along with a dedicated committee and a team of volunteers. It is focused on celebrating the creations of local and regional  breweries, cideries, and distilleries.

Ticket holders will enjoy creative and innovative local flavours produced by regional breweries, cideries, and distilleries with a passion for hand-crafting. Food trucks will be stationed on the grounds offering mouth-watering morsels and Vancouver’s top corporate show band, March Hare Band, will energize the atmosphere with their exciting and versatile show!

We invite you to pour during Cask & Keg, as we celebrate the many amazing beverage producers of our region. Along with pouring for guests, there will be an on-site liquor store for bottle sales. Sales of these bottles will be near the exit of the festival grounds. Bottles will not be allowed to be consumed on site.

The event will take place at Oliver Community Park located at 3569 Park Drive, Oliver, BC.
