HAPPENING NOW Okanagan Wine Festival Legacy Fund Online Auction

The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society is one of the largest not-for-profit wine industry festival and marketing organizations in Canada. Founded in 1980, the OWFS is committed to providing authentic wine experiences to Valley locals and visitors alike. We strive to connect consumers through uniquely designed wine festivals and tasting events with over 100 wineries across the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys.

In order to continue to deliver the year round programming and BC Wine Awards that benefits the entire BC Grape and wine industry we have had to find new ways to generate those critical dollars. Times have changed and Corporate Sponsorship dollars have greatly diminished and the tourism industry is still in recovery mode. This online auction will help to sustain the festival.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated. We thank you in advance.
