Kelowna Hopscotch Festival
A Premier Okanagan Scotch, Whisky & Beer Festival
The Hopscotch Festival, which originated in Vancouver BC, is the largest combined Whisky and Beer festival in Canada, and has been taking place for more than 15 years now.
In Kelowna, this great event, which takes place during our beautiful fall season, has grown in the first five years it's been on, and attracts many visitors - more than 5000 people!
Those who attend can learn about and taste premium Canadian and Internationally crafted beers and whiskey, as well as other spirits and wine, that are both new and old to the Okanagan Valley market.
There are hundreds of products from many brewers and distillers to taste from like Scotch Whisky, Canadian whisky, Ale's, Rum, Vodka, Spiced Ale, Lager, Tequila, Bourbon, Gin, Vodka Iced Tea (yup!), and much much more. Not only that, but you also get to experience some great food and top class entertainment!

How It Works
You buy your tickets, either in advance (recommended) or at the door. You can only use 'tokens' at the event 'Tasting Hall' market.
You'll receive five tokens, which are included with the ticket that you purchase for the festival. Then, once you're in, if you use up all your tokens, you can buy additional tokens, at token booths.

Come witness the Kelowna Curling Club transform once again into the hottest tasting event in North America! The 5th Annual Hopscotch event hosted by Foodconnect.com is back and it's better than ever!
This is a great opportunity to taste a variety of Beer and Spirits including Scotch, Whisky, Tequila, Gin and Rum!
With over 60 booths and 100 brands from all over the world, we are also host to your local favorites from Vancouver, Kelowna, Penticton and surrounding areas.
This highly anticipated event sells out so fast that we added an additional night in 2012. 5000 classy people attended over the 2 days to taste delicious local food, while sampling drinks they might never have tried elsewhere.
The smart casual event is complete with live music by Goby Catt and only the most friendly and knowledgeable staff that will leave no question unanswered.
