FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 17, 2020
The Board of Directors of the Okanagan Fest of Ale Society have made the decision to postpone the Okanagan Fest of Ale for 2020. “It has been a very difficult decision, but all of us on the Board know it is the right decision given the uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak,” said John Cruickshank, President of the Okanagan Fest of Ale.
“The health and well-being of everyone involved in Fest of Ale (volunteers, vendors, patrons, and sponsors) and our community was first and foremost on our minds in making the decision.” Cruickshank went on to say.
Operating as a not for profit society, The Okanagan Fest of Ale donates all net proceeds of the event back into the community. To date, $757,600.00 has been gifted back to local charities and not for profit societies operating in the South Okanagan. This year’s festival was going to be the biggest and best yet, celebrating 25 years!
Next year’s event will be held in the spring of 2021.
