The Cheese and Meat Festival celebrates craftsmanship, culture, and community. The Festival provides a platform for artisan brands to showcase in a convenient one-stop shop format.

  • When: Saturday, May 13, 2023

When you arrive at the Festival, you’ll receive a tasting glass for sipping and your charcuterie board, a gift from the Festival. Have you ever walked into a retailer and been overwhelmed by the sheer size of the specialty food selection? Our goal is to connect our guests back to the brands within their region without being overwhelmed by not knowing what these specialty items taste like.

We’ve carefully curated the vendor flow to give guests natural pairings while engaging with the creators. Our goal is to expand the footprint of the local food and beverage movement in Kelowna.” – David Bain, Festival Director/Founder.
