Again this year, the wineries of the Similkameen Wineries Association will be selling their wines by the glass and bottle at each show. Also, the Grist Mill’s Executive Chef, Natasha Shooten, will be preparing delicious picnic-style dinners beginning at 5:30 p.m. for each show, while doors open for non-dinner patrons at 6:30 p.m. and concerts start at 7 p.m.
Patrons are encouraged to bring their own blankets and low-rise beach chairs; higher lawn chairs are also welcome, but they may be asked to sit in the back to avoid obstructing the view of others.
Tickets for all shows are available for sale at the Grist Mill front desk ($15 per show), on the website atwww.oldgristmill.ca or by phone at 250-499-2888 during business hours (daily 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.).
