24th Annual Galiano Wine & Beer Tasting Festival

galianowinefest2016Saturday August 6, 2016 is our next festival and it already promises to be bigger and better than ever.

While the highlight will continue to be the various wines and beers available for sampling coupled with tasty finger foods prepared by volunteers, this year’s event will be the first with the opportunity to purchase bottles of your favourite wine and beer. The capacity to purchase ‘take-home’ bottles is in response to suggestions from patrons attending past Festivals on Galiano, along with changes in the provincial laws regarding alcohol sales that allow limited sales near the site of the tasting festival.

Tickets will be $45 again this year and entitle the ticket holder to receive a free souvenir wine glass and a souvenir beer glass, in addition to Festival admission. Tickets go on sale on May 1st. Reservations will continue to be open until August 5th (dependent upon availability).

Check out the Festival website for additional information, ticket sales and contact details.
