Festival of Trees

The Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association is pleased to announce..........

Festival of Trees: Now spread throughout Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country November 24th to January 2nd.

The Festival is open to the public who are invited to browse through the holiday displays at four locations this year and enjoy the holiday splendour. This year Festival of Trees is being shared between our two communities of Oliver and Osoyoos with trees on display at Nk'Mip Cellars Winery, Watermark Beach Resort, Frank Venables Theatre Lobby. There is no admission for this event and everyone is encouraged to come and vote for their favourite tree; a minimum donation of $2 is requested. Donations over $25 BC Children's Hospital (BCCH) will issue tax-receipts.

Trees will be on display as follows:

  • Nk’Mip Cellars Winery - 10am to 5pm daily
  • Watermark Beach Resort - 8am to 11pm daily
  • Frank Venables Theatre - 9am to 3pm Mon-Fri + performance and posted times

This event will be to support both the BC Children's Hospital and the South Okanagan Children's Charity.

The Festival of Trees started in Vancouver 30 years ago to raise funds for BC Children's Hospital Foundation and has grown in several communities in the years since. All monies raised from sponsorship of the trees will be in support of the BC Children's Hospital.

Monies from the silent auction held at Watermark Beach Resort will support the the South Okanagan Children's Charity. 

This year we aim to have more than 2500 visitors to the festival and we are certain that with continued commu-nity support in Oliver and Osoyoos Wine Country the event will build awareness and support for the BCCH and the SOCC. Please review the attached sponsorship package for how to include your company in this noteworthy and community based event.
