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 throughtout our wine region  of Oliver and Osoyoos with trees on display at Nk'Mip Cellars Winery, Black Hills Estate Winery, Oliver Twist Estate Winery and Tinhorn Creek Winery. 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:

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.

This year we aim to have more than 2500 visitors to the festival and we are certain that with continued community support in Oliver and Osoyoos Wine Country the event will build awareness and support for the BCCH and the SOCC.
