High tea at the SS Sicamous

Hop on board the SS Sicamous for an Alice and Wonderland inspired high tea

Don’t be late for a very important date.

Hop on board the SS Sicamous for an Alice and Wonderland inspired high tea. Bring your best hat and enjoy a touch of madness while helping raise funds for the SS Sicamous Society. Guest can roam throughout the ship while enjoying dainty snacks and sipping tea from vintage teacups.

The high tea will be on Sunday, Aug. 6 (from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.). This money raised will be used for repairs and restorations on the ships.

The dining hall will be filled with the melody of vintage tunes and the enthusiastic murmur of guests, dressed in their Sunday best. An aroma of freshly baked goods and fragrant tea drifts through the air. During the afternoon, there will be an array of tasty snacks and appetizers, provided by Okanogan Vintage Catering. The foods will be served on vintage china, and will be paired with delicious freshly baked desserts from Cobs Bread Bakery and tea provided by Teas &Weaves.

“This event is always popular, and we expect it to be a sellout event,” said Sierra Mackay, event co-ordinator. “We are excited to share the history and entertainment with you all again this year.”

Tickets are $30 each (or $100 for a group of four) and can be purchased at the boat itself (at 1099 Lakeshore Dr.) or online at eventbrite.com.

Guests are advised to purchase in advance, as tickets will not be sold at the door.

“So grab your best costume and take the leap down the rabbit hole – to a time of elegance, madness and wonder with the high tea aboard the historic S.S. Sicamous.” said Mackay.
