Enjoy fall’s bounty and beauty.
Fall in love with the bounty of autumn. The culmination of a hot summer extends into a warm, golden-hued season of harvesting all that Oliver offers, from fruit to wine to spectacular moments in nature.
We are the Wine Capital of Canada, and this is our season to show off. Book an extended stay for the Okanagan Fall Wine Festival, and browse dozens of events throughout the region. A wine-themed breakfast? Why not. Blending your own Bordeaux-style bottle? Be a winemaker, if only for a few hours. Form a team, get some costumes, and stomp some grapes at the Festival of the Grape.
Step away from the stomping and climb a ladder. The harvest season is long and varied, and nothing tastes better than your own, hand-picked and hand-made “farm to table” pie. Explore fruit stands dotted along highways and country roads, gathering all the fresh ingredients any cook could desire.
Take a break from the fruits of your labour. Head outdoors to watch the salmon run, or hike up McIntyre Bluff in search of wildlife and truly get back to the land, capturing the stillness of a moment with a Bighorn sheep.
As the night air begins to chill, you’ll know…you’ve fallen for Oliver in autumn.
