Hopscotch 2013Last year Kelown'a Hopscotch Festival was taken to an entirely new level. The Grand Tasting was extended to two-nights in order to accommodate the immense demand for tickets. With more than FIVE-THOUSAND people attending the Grand Tasting Hall over two nights, the Hopscotch Festival was an event missed by few.
In 2013 the festival turns 18 years old (it started in Vancouver) and will mark the fifth year that it will take place in Kelowna. The growing pains are gone and the event has become something very special. For four hours per night, The Kelowna Curling Club is transformed into an educational tasting event where people come to sip, taste, learn, and shmooze about premium whiskies, beers, and other spirits that are both new and old to the local market. Come and visit! We will see you there.
