Sun Peaks Resort Summer Festival News  
 
May 30th, 2012

Directly from the Sun Peaks Resort Press Release:

The 1st Liquid Gold: Beer & Whisky Festival – July 27 to 28
The 5th Annual Wine and Culture Festival – July 6 to 8

Sun Peaks, BC (May 30, 2012) -  July will be the perfect time to soak in Sun Peaks’ outdoor ambiance at two festivals dedicated to fine fare and culture. The well established Wine & Culture Festival (July 6 to 8) will be joined by the new Liquid Gold: Beer & Whisky Festival (July 27 to 28), continuing to grow Canada’s Alpine Village as a summer destination for those looking to enjoy the finer things in life.

“The arts and culture scene is growing every year at Sun Peaks,” says Christopher Nicolson, president of Tourism Sun Peaks. “The Wine & Culture Festival, the new Liquid Gold Festival and Art Zone workshops make Sun Peaks appeal to more than just sports enthusiasts.”

B.C. wines, fine local ingredients and gifted regional musicians and artists will once again combine in perfect harmony for The 5th Annual Wine & Culture Festival. In its fifth year, the event continues to grow as a signature weekend getaway for wine and culture lovers from across the local region, the Lower Mainland and Washington. Organizers are preparing to ascend last year’s success which saw several sold out events.

In addition to classic favourites such as the Symphony of Flavours wine tasting and tapas and the Sunburst BBQ & Mid-Mountain Trio Serenade, local artist Debbie Milner will be hosting a new art workshop. Guests will learn how to enhance their own painting style while working with the natural elements surrounding them.

“This weekend has come into its own as a signature Sun Peaks event,” says Nicholson. “Obviously, we are every excited Kevin Costner will be performing on the same weekend, but it means people must book in advance.”

The new Liquid Gold: Beer & Whisky Festival spans two days and features the finest in high quality liquor and premium beer. Participants will attend a beer seminar hosted by one of Kamloops’ favourite restaurants, The Noble Pig, and a whisky seminar. Sun Peaks restaurants will also be offering different specials and events around the intimate, pedestrian village. And for those who can’t wait that long, our Mountain of Beer & Chili Cook-Off is happening during our Summer Kick-Off Weekend (June 30 to July 1).

Art Zone workshops will also be available throughout the summer. Guests will have the opportunity to learn from local artists on a variety of mediums.

Sun Peaks Resort is proud to be adding these unique events to its summer calendar.

“We are excited to be offering these new events,” says Nicholson. “It expands the resort’s appeal to a wider audience and reflects the growing diversity at Sun Peaks.”
