The Kelowna Curling Club will come alive Sunday with live entertainment, food, wine, beer, spirits and sports.

It’s the 22nd annual Taste of Kelowna put on by the B.C. Restaurant and Foodservices Association, featuring tastes from more than 20 area restaurants offering flavours from around the world. Many new restaurants will be taking part this year as well as favourites from years past.

“This year we want our event to be a true taste of Kelowna and our culture,” said Dan Darragh, branch chairman of the BCRFA Okanagan.

Family activities will include face painting, bean bag toss and balloon animals, plus local roller derby girls will be on-site selling 50/50 tickets on behalf of the society.

“This popular event is a wonderful opportunity for people to sample cuisine and drink from local businesses,” said Darragh. “Once again this event will give back to our community as all net proceeds go to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, the YMCA-YWCA of the Central Okanagan and Kids Care.”

It runs from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 27 at the curling club, 551 Recreation Ave.

Tickets are $3 for children, $5 for adults and a family pass is $10. Tasting tickets are $1 each and prices range from 1 to 3 tasting tickets per sample.

The BCRFA represents more than 3,000 restaurant and foodservice businesses across the province. To learn more about the BCRFA visit the website at
