It’s a craft sale, art show, sip and savour opportunity and even a chance to take a photo of the kids with the big, jolly guy in the red suit—plus it’s a fund-raiser for Ballet Kelowna and local food banks.

Get a jump on Christmas shopping at the annual Sugar Plum Fair at Quails’ Gate Estate Winery on Boucherie Road in West Kelowna Sun., Nov. 18, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There’ll be local artisans such as Jean-Ann Copley with her stained glass, Ray Jurys’ wood work, Betty Gordon’s clay jewellery, Vera Gibault’s bead jewellery, Andrea McFadden’s lavender products, Annabel Stanley’s wicker art, Giselle Gaspar’s unique jewellery and Laurette Kropp’s skin care products for sale.

Santa will hold court in the historic Allison log home on the winery grounds, the Old Vines Restaurant will be open for dining, and there will be wine sipping in the wine shop—including seasonal mulled wine and treats.

Bring your non-perishable food item to donate to the food bank and enjoy a festive afternoon with dancers from Ballet Kelowna, who would also welcome donations, and carollers to entertain you.

 

You can also learn how to make Christmas decorations, with a little help from Santa.
