KELOWNA – The Okanagan Feast of Fields is back again this year, celebrating the harvest and highlighting the connections between local farmers and chefs.

The wandering festival brings together 30 restaurants and 30 wineries, distilleries and breweries into one location and will take place at the Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm August 17.

Feast of Fields coordinator Allison Love says there are a number of new restaurants making their debut this year, including Blu Saffron at Volcanic Hills, Smoke & Oak Bistro from Wild Goose Vineyards and Liquidity Restaurant at Liquidity Winery. Top Chef competitor Chris Shaften’s Krafty Kitchen + Bar is also joining this year.

Okanagan Feast of Fields participants represent the entire valley from North to South,” Love says. “Burrowing Owl Estate Winery paired with food from their signature restaurant Sonora Room, delicious wine from Tantalus Vineyards just down the road from our host farm in Kelowna, paired with food from the Harvest Golf Club, and Ex Nihilo Vineyards, Gray Monk Estate Winery and Grapevine Restaurant all coming from the north and many more in between.”

Funds raised go towards supporting Farm Folk City Folk, a not-for-profit organization that cultivates local, sustainable food systems across the province.

Tickets are available at Choices Markets in Kelowna, the Penticton and Wine Country Tourism Centre or online.
