Woodstock Revival is a Celebration of 60′s culture and the music from that era. This year will be the 3rd Annual. The event takes place in Oyama, B.C. at Gatzke Orchards. The festival is produced by Alan Gatzke, Go EVENTS, Gatzke Orchard and Jason Buie. Woodstock Revival is a three day festival in the spirit of 1969 with peaceful vibes, cool vendors, amazing food and great music. The orchard transforms into a hippie utopia full of tye dye and patchouli! This is an all ages event! It is safe and fun for the whole family.

GOtv: Victoria Day, DAY140 #IYFF

The 2014 International Year of Family Farming (IYFF) aims to raise the profile of family farming and smallholder farming by focusing world attention on its significant role in eradicating hunger and poverty, providing food security and nutrition, improving livelihoods, managing natural resources, protecting the environment, and achieving sustainable development, in particular in rural areas.

Gatzke Orchards has been an iconic mainstay in Lake Country and the popularity of their unique location on Pelmewash Parkway makes them the hotspot in the summer. The orchard hosts over a dozen weddings, some music shows and special events each summer, while also running a restaurant and catering on-site.
