After two years of us missing the popular Shuswap Wine Fest with Spirit, we will be hosting our 18th Annual Event again this Fall, on October 22.  The event will be held at the Centenoka Park Mall and will have the same format as we've always had, with popular wineries, distilleries and, hopefully, our new local cideries offering samples of their product.  This will be accompanied by appies provided as samples from local food manufacturers.
 
Tickets will be available on-line for sale very soon, so keep an eye on this website and our Facebook and Instagram posts.  We look forward to seeing you there!
