Curlers and fans of this popular Canadian pastime will want to start planning a trip to Osoyoos this summer. In August, Osoyoos is home to the renowned Mid Summer Bonspiel. Hosted by the International Curling Club, this curling tournament takes place at the club's headquarters on Hummingbird Lane. For the Ultimate Okanagan experience, pick a nearby Osoyoos hotel with spectacular views and access to the sophisticated culture of the town's downtown area.
The tournament will feature at least four games over four days, and the event takes on a festive theme: The Wild West. Visitors are encouraged to dress in their finest cowboy boots and spurs, and prizes will be awarded for the most elaborate getups. Guests will be served a pancake breakfast and steak dinner, and there will also be an array of special events to keep the non-curling-fans entertained. For instance, the barn dance will bring all of the participants together for an exciting night of live music and dancing.
Whether you're a seasoned curler partaking in the competition or a fan coming to spectate, take an extended four-day weekend and make your way to Osoyoos. With a stay in one of the carefully crafted designer suites of Walnut Beach Resort, you'll enjoy easy access to the Bonspiel while indulging in the luxury of its world-class accommodations.
