Tailgate Party Has Moved!

The Tailgate Party has MOVED!.

The Tailgate Party is still sold out.

But its location is now at Red Rooster Winery.

This is just up the road from its original location, and it has been moved due to extremely dry conditions creating a potential fire hazard near the original site.

For ticket holders, we look forward to you joining us for a fabulous evening celebrating harvest as the sun sets over Okanagan Lake.
We invite you to kick up your heels in your most colourful gumboots to strut the “back to our roots” theme this year. Tap into your creativity, if you dare, because prizes will be awarded for the most creative gumboots.

 

This year we are pleased to welcome FedEx as a returning Premier Sponsor for the Tailgate Party.

 

Tailgate Party tickets include shuttles from Penticton and Naramata.  There isn’t much parking near the new site at Red Rooster Winery so book your shuttle now!
