Christmas Market & Art Show at Bo.tegga

oook contributor Nico Boesten tells us a bit more about what Tribehouse is cooking up at Bo.tegga this weekend

Over the past couple of years we’ve been able to host some incredible arts & craft shows with some top notch artists (to drop a few names, people like Sparky Jones, Suzanne Kruse, Rena Warren, Shauna Oddleifson, Carrie Harper, Nikki Balfour). Now, we’ve been helping put together a huge Christmas Market, Art Show, & Concert this weekend (Dec. 10 – 11) together with Bo.ttega & TribeHouse where some of these same artists (& others) will be strutting their stuff up at a brand new venue called Bo.ttega. It’s a family-friendly thing so if you’re around, pop on up to scope out this open house (& the latest word is that there may even be pony rides on Sunday).

Bo.ttega Farm Inn in the heart of South East Kelowna is hosting their first Christmas Open House featuring some of the Okanagan’s Finest Artists, Crafters & Musicians all within Kelowna’s newest venue. Bring your family to enjoy the spirit of the season browsing through the market and experiencing local artisans, crafts, baking and music.

Saturday December 10th and Sunday 11th from 11am – 5pm with a Christmas concert on the 10th at 7.30pm

This two day open house will connect you with outstanding local Etsy crafters in our community, such as Sparky Jones, Suzanne Kruse, Rena Warren, Shauna Oddleifson and many more. Artwork from local artists will be on display for sale including John Revill, Alex Fong, Dave Watland, Nikki Balfour, Carrie Harper, and Steve Huculiak.

Christmas Carols will be echoing through the halls courtesy of local musicians, and you will find savoury European baking, Glog wine (Glühwein), artisan coffee and stollen bread to warm you up while you explore Bo.ttega.

Admission is $2, with all proceeds going to the Kelowna Foodbank, children are free.
