Here's an event that roots music fans won't want to miss. This summer, the annual Bluegrass/Country Festival returns to Osoyoos for its eighth year, bringing with it the old-time tunes of Appalachia. Plan a weekend getaway for August 9-11, and reserve one of the carefully crafted designer suites at the Walnut Beach Resort.
Presented by the Osoyoos Lake Lions Club, this year's fest will be held in Desert Park. Bring your own instruments along and join in on the jam sessions, or just sit back and relax as the soothing sounds of banjos, fiddles, harmonicas and acoustic guitars fill the air. On Saturday, sit down for a pancake breakfast among the company of other music fans, followed by a band scramble. On Sunday, the event comes to a close with a finale and a gospel.
This event is budget and family friendly, but feel free to leave the kids at home and take advantage of a relaxing weekend alone to soak in bluegrass and country tunes. And with the luxury accommodations of nearby Walnut Beach Resort, you can take in the down-home feel of Southern music then hit the town and enjoy the ultimate Okanagan experience.
