Bring your dog to this year’s Peachland Business, Wine and Pet Expo

The 22nd Peachland Business, Wine & Pet Expo is bigger and better than ever with over 40 businesses getting to showcase their goods and services on Saturday April 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Peachland Community Centre.

A unique day of fun filled events, door prizes, guest speakers, wine tasting, and some exceptional food is planned. Okanagan Appraisals will be doing antique appraisals (bring your antiques) and for families we’ll have a magic show by Okanagan’s own Leif David, who has been performing for over 20 years across Western Canada.

You’re guaranteed a show all ages will love, with a fun-filled magic show that will have the entire family laughing, participating, and experiencing a sense of wonder! This family magic show features magic, audience participation, comedy, and music. Leif David will invite audience members on stage to help make magic happen in the palm of their hands while ad-libbing to audience comments and reactions.

New additions to the Business Expo are Okanagan wineries with wine tasting from Kalala Organic Estate Winery, Little Straw Vineyard and Heaven’s Gate Estate Winery. Some great wine needs some exceptional food, which shall be provided by Peachland owned Blue Rooster Cafe. The Blue Rooster has prepared special food pairing with each unique wine. Come down for lunch and enjoy wine and appetizers on a beautiful Peachland spring day.

This year the show is pet friendly, so bring your dogs (you can even get them groomed while you visit our expo) and you are invited to participate with our lineup of great speakers. Starting the day in our pet room will be the SPCA speaking about adopting a pet and agility training for dogs. Donations will be accepted. Your gift can help save lives. The BC SPCA is a not-for-profit organization that relies on public donations to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia. Funds donated to the BC SPCA Kelowna branch will be used to help animals in our community.

Ed Gariepy of Bark Busters will provide an informative session on in home dog training.” Dr. Moshe Oz of Rose Valley Veterinary will provide a Q & A on puppy to senior dog issues, and answer all of your questions. Scott Smockum of Synthetic Turf will provide some options using synthetic turf for pets. Peachland’s own Darlene Hartford will provide an informative seminar on “Bats in the attic,” a topic the entire family will enjoy.

Our next speaker is an event you don’t want to miss: Wayne Dorman of Dogzies School of Excellence will drop by and provide his expertise in his world experiences and training for dogs. Wayne is especially known for his unique canine safaris, especially teaching dogs to behave around horses and riders. He has been featured on television and in the newspapers many times. His newest venture is educational workshops in South Africa. The first trip has been immensely popular and sold out within days! He also has a very in demand “shadow” training program for other professional dog trainers. People come from around the world to learn from him.

This year’s Peachland Chamber of Commerce Business, Wine & Pet Expo has something for everyone. Bring your family, the dog, and your taste buds and enjoy the show. Admission is $2, while kids under 12 are free.
