Experience the diverse aromas, flavours, and textures at the Cheese and Meat Festival—the exclusive celebration dedicated to artisanal food in the Pacific Northwest. Guests navigate a culinary exploration, sampling various international and local artisanal foods and liquors. The Festival is hosted at the historic Laurel Packinghouse in downtown Kelowna in an indoor/outdoor setting.

How does the Festival operate? It's structured into distinct tasting sessions, each with varying durations. VIP ticket holders enjoy an exclusive one-hour early access with a reduced capacity set at 40%. Other tasting sessions are allotted 2-hour blocks, providing ample time to explore diverse vendors. All tickets include samples, and we aim to feature 40+ vendors on-site, each showcasing 3-12 items. Full-sized items are available for purchase, with vendors encouraged to offer them at discounted rates. Upon entry, guests receive a mini charcuterie board, a convenient platform to savour samples while vendors provide insights about their showcased items. Please review the agenda below for the timing of events.

This Festival showcases all artisan foods and beverages - Not only Cheese and Meat. We showcase a 60/40 food-to-beverage mix.
