The Festival Of The Grape Is Back & It’s Bigger & Better Than Ever!

Brought To You By Oliver Tourism

Festival of the Grape is back stronger and better than ever! Taste local and regional wines while your kids have fun at Kids Zone, indulge in delicious ‘food truck’ food, watch or take part in fun and exciting events, shop for artisan wares at Merchant Market, browse the Fall Art Show & Sale, dance to live music by Vancouver’s top corporate show band, the highly talented and versatile March Hare Band, and more as we celebrate the grape and the best of BC wine!

The Oliver Tourism Association, along with a dedicated committee and a team of volunteers, is bringing back our most celebrated festival here in Canada’s Wine Capital and the South Okanagan.

Attracting an estimated 4,500 attendees annually, this family-friendly one-day festival offers something for everyone!

Fun & Exciting Events!

You’ll definitely want to be part of or watch the chaos while you cheer on one of 30 teams in the popular Grape Stomp Competition (brought to you this year by (Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country).

This year we’re adding a new event, the grueling Fairview Mountain “Crush the Climb” cycling hill challenge where you can test your strength and endurance against other cyclists. Do you have what it takes to win? If you’re not a cyclist, you can watch and cheer competitors on from various points.

Welcoming Ceremonies & Parade

The Festival of the Grape begins with a parade and welcome ceremony. Participating wineries will arrive waiving their banners high; Grape Stomp competitors start to show off their costumes; and dignitaries from the region will welcome you to the Town of Oliver and the traditional Okanagan Nation territory. Bacchus will then officially announce the opening of the wine tasting tents.

Explore, Enjoy & Be Entertained!

After Bacchus’ welcome, start exploring the Festival grounds. Cheer on the costume judging at the Grape Stomp stage prior to the first heat, stroll the Merchant Market looking for unique artisan wares, browse the Fall Art Show and Sale to be inspired by local talent, visit one of the many food trucks for delicious bites, and sample from the cornucopia of BC wines. At the same time the kids are encouraged to visit the Kids Zone with interactive games, crafts and inflatables to keep them entertained too.
