KELOWNA - The suds will be flowing again this spring as the fourth annual Great Okanagan Beer Festival returns to downtown Kelowna.

“We had such an incredible response from breweries, festival-goers and the Kelowna community at large in 2017,” festival events manager Tara Myers said in a press release. “We’re so thrilled to return for our fourth year and are confident that we’ll bring our best programming yet in 2018."

Myers said the 2018 festival’s main event will return to Waterfront Park on Saturday, May 12, capping the three-day festival which begins Thursday, May 10 with peripheral events at bars and restaurants throughout the city.

The main event brings together around 3,000 beer fans with 60 craft breweries offering samples of 120 different craft beers, the release said. This is on top of live music, food trucks, interactive games and exhibitor booths.

A full festival schedule will be released closer to the event date but main event tickets for early bird prices are available now exclusively online at
