Autumn is harvest time in Osoyoos – a beautiful season when the days are still pleasantly temperate and the crops yield apples, prunes, pears and squash galore. The residents of this quaint Okanagan Valley town celebrate each year with an array of festivities like the early November Harvest Dinner Dance. This annual event is held at the Sonora Community Centre, only a five-minute drive from your luxurious room at the Walnut Beach Resort.
Established in 2012, the Harvest Dinner Dance is a night of delectable food and lively entertainment. Local chef Troy Bratton cooks up culinary delights using fresh Osoyoos ingredients, then musicians take to the stage to incite some rowdy dancing. But there's more than just food and cutting a rug – you can also take part in a silent auction. Proceeds from the auction go to a variety of area organizations, including the Osoyoos Royalty Program, Osoyoos Child Care Centre and Osoyoos Dry Grad.
