Breweries putting their best craft brews on display include Barley Mill Brew Pub and Cannery Brewing Co.

Providing the spirits are Maple Leaf Spirits.

Tasty eats from around town are provided by Bogner’s of Penticton, Black Iron Grill, Theo’s Restaurant, Spice Magic and Craft Corner Kitchen.

While taking in the tastes of the Okanagan, Martin Street Art and Music Gallery are putting the works of local artists up for auction.

Other items, including 102 bottles of Canadian wine, are up for silent auction.

Tickets are $35 and include three tasting tickets and a souvenir wine glass. Extra tasting tickets are $2 each. Tickets are available at the Martin Street Gallery or from any Rotarian. They’re also available at the door, but don’t miss out, get yours early.
