Top Winery In Canada Plans On Building Massive Entertainment Area To Host Post-pandemic Events

A popular winery overlooking Okanagan Lake in Kelowna, B.C., wants to hold major events in the post-pandemic world, catering for up to 700 people.

CedarCreek Estate Winery, located at 5445 Lakeshore Dr., has submitted an application to B.C.’s Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch to licence two areas of the property for special events.

“Proposed licensed hours are 9:00 a.m.-12:00 midnight Monday to Sunday for the social event area,” said a sign outlining the application near the winery.

“Person capacity for the proposed establishment will be limited to two exterior areas, a 500-person exterior area, and a second 200-person exterior area,” the sign said.

“CedarCreek Estate Winery is proud of the close connections we have to the local community. For more than 30 years we have welcomed guests to dine at our winery restaurant, watch artists perform at our concert series, and attend special wedding celebrations,” said Ian Galbraith, vice-president of communications, in an email.
