Fabulous Feast of Fields recap

The sixth annual FarmFolk CityFolk Okanagan Feast of Fields has come and gone, and oh, what an event it was. It’s not quite clear how the FarmFolk CityFolk organizers are able to get the weather to cooperate each and every year, but they do.

Now you might be wondering, why I’m telling you this. Well if you were there, it’s a trip down memory lane. If you missed it, it’s a wake up call to pay attention and make sure you make it to next year’s event.

On August 17, over 30 restaurants and 30 wineries, distilleries and breweries were all in one place: the Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm. The venue was stunning with beautiful rows of lavender dividing the tents and Okanagan Lake as the backdrop. Thank you to David and Andrea McFadden for letting so many hungry and festive people traipse through your beautiful space.

Feast of Fields has been around for 20 years and is a way to bring people who create delicious things to people who love delicious things. Imagine chefs, farmers, fishers, ranchers, food artisans, vintners, brewers, and distillers all in one field. Now imagine yourself with a wine glass and a white napkin, wandering from tent to tent sampling their wares.

This year, as every year, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a winery I never knew existed, and a dish I loved, that I never thought I’d like. That’s what Feast of Fields is for. It’s a way to bring all that’s out there into one space for you to sample, discover, and enjoy. It really doesn’t get much better than that.

So, don’t forget – next year – Okanagan Feast of Fields – be there.

Publisher and CEO of something or other! First & foremost, father, son, brother and uncle. I am also a huge music fan, promoter and marketing & promotions maniac. As a fulltime musician for the past 35 years myself (yikes, that’s a long time!), I’ve come to appreciate the fact that I am able to perform and sing for people and in return, enjoy it as much as I do. There is something to be said for that exchange of energy and good vibes that live music brings to all, from the stage to the seats, there is nothing like it and I so look forward to feeling that again when we are out of this crazy mess we are in. Music is needed desperately in everyone’s lives. The goal is to reach out and bring some awareness and light into the music scene by featuring their new music, events and in general, some light into the changes we’ve all had to adjust to in 2020. We all feel the strain in every aspect of these changes and are going to try to do our best to fill our cups up with some fantastic local music while many so of us hang on through this bumpy ride we are on. ? Making an effort to change our own thoughts and habits, can strike a chord mentally and change us along with our communities lives. Be safe and…let’s ROCK N ROLL!
