Giddy up for Township 7 celebration

On Saturday, Township 7 Winery celebrates being selected as the official centennial wine for the Calgary Stampede.

Explore your inner cowboy and cowgirl this Saturday at Township 7 Winery as they celebrate being selected as the official centennial wine for the Calgary Stampede.

Township 7 has partnered with a local charity to hold a western roundup party on the Naramata Bench. Partial proceeds of the event will go towards the South Okanagan Habitat for Humanity.

This is a non-profit housing program dedicated to the elimination of poverty housing by building homes in partnership with families in need.

Indulge in a barbecue paired with Township 7’s limited edition wine at the outdoor wine bar. Live country music by Almost Alan, Canada’s premier Alan Jackson tribute artist.

For 100 years the Calgary Stampede has brought people from all over the world together to experience their unique western heritage and values. Township 7 is bringing that hospitality to B.C., asking the community to join them for a fun, family-friendly afternoon of wine, food, music and games for the kids in support of Habitat For Humanity.

Admission is by donation and the celebration goes from noon to 4 p.m. There will be family friendly western activities, line dancing demos, roping lessons and tricks, a kids corral, a Habitat for Humanity playhouse and old time dress up and photography by Rogue’s Gallery Photo Parlour.

A cake cutting and welcome ceremony by Township 7 proprietors Mike and Lori Raffan will be at 1 p.m. From 1 to 3:30 p.m. a barrel blending seminar is available for a fee.
