Come and join us for the Galiano Wine Festival– just for the health of it!
It’s a fun event for a worthwhile cause – to raise the money needed to keep the Galiano Island Health Care Centre up to date and serving the community. The event is a pleasant 20 minute walk from the ferry and the Village, to the Community Lions Park.
Informal and joyful, the wine and beer festival is an open-air event that is a wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon. And at $40 a ticket, it is great value! The price of entrance includes unlimited tasting, a crested Riedel crystal wine glass, fresh-made finger food, and entertainment. We also have Galiano artists exhibiting and selling their original work. There’s room to move around, no long waits for the wines and beers/ales you want to taste, plenty of time to talk with the wine merchants, wine makers and beer makers as well as hanging out with your old and new friends.
All the wines offered for sampling are affordable, including many wonderful British Columbia boutique wines found at Vintages Wine Shop in the Galiano Oceanfton Inn & Spa, The Corner Store (just 3 km from the Village) or the Galiano Garage, near the ferry terminal. Beers is sold at the Corner Store and the Galiano Garage.
Also part of the Festival experience is a wide array of finger food to enjoy; a Silent Auction and a 50/50 Draw, as well as a selection of books and gifts related to the wine festival.
