Join us for a fabulous evening featuring BC’s very-best craft cideries pouring samples of their newest, tastiest ciders.  Pair that with incredible bacon-inspired dishes prepared and served by the Okanagan College Culinary Arts students.  Enjoy the flamenco-influenced strumming of our award winning guitarist.  And take it all in at Kelowna’s beautiful and historic Laurel Packinghouse, in the downtown core at the centre of the Okanagan Valley.
