Quail’s Gate Sugar Plum Fair right around the corner

"It's the end of our harvest and the beginning of the holiday season, and it is the perfect time of year to host a fun family event”

An opportunity to start the Christmas season on the right foot is right around the corner.

Quail’s Gate is hosting the fourth annual Sugar Plum Fair, and for the occasion is bringing together carolers, ballet dancing sugar plum fairies, apple cider, wine, cookies and, of course, the jolly man in the red suit.

“We started the Sugar Plum Fair as a way for Quails’ Gate to say thank you to the community. It is the end of our harvest and the beginning of the holiday season, and we think it is the perfect time of year to host a fun family event,” said Cheryl Saint-Galloway, Wine Shop Manager at Quails’ Gate.

“We have been running our Sugar Plum Fair for four years now and it has become a family tradition for many. It’s so great to see the kids year after year and to see how much they have grown.”

The Sugar Plum Fair features not only seasonal staples, but also the wares of local artisans and crafters, and as even more incentive, a few discounts.

That includes 15 per cent off everything in the wine shop, including wine, and 20 per cent off Brunch and Lunch at Old Vines Restaurant.

“It is the only day of the year that we offer a discount,” she said.

Santa will be in Allison House, the log cabin on the estate, fielding requests. Professional photos with Santa are $10, extra prints $5 each, or you can use your own camera and donate to our regional food banks and Ballet Kelowna.

The event will be held Sunday Nov. 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
