Tapas will be served, provided by local restaurants including The Vanilla Pod at Poplar Grove Winery, The Kitchen at Da Silva Winery, The Bistro at Hillside Winery and others. Live music is also scheduled for the Roaring-20s-themed event.

According to a news release, there will be a costume contest for the best dressed in 20s attire, an era when Naramata and the Heritage Inn were in their infancy. While in the past a password was needed to attend an event like this, all you need to gain entry this time is your event ticket.
