PART OF THE ORANGE WINTER FIRE FESTIVAL
AUGUST 3rd 2019, 5pm
Join Bite Riot cherries, See Saw wine and Pioneer Brewing Co. beer for an evening of wassailing, bonfires and local music by Lueth Ajak, while we bless the grape vines, as well as the apple and cherry orchards, in preparation for Spring.
To wassail :: drink alcohol and enjoy oneself with others in a noisy, lively way.
Wassailing :: The ancient custom of visiting food/beverage producing area, reciting incantations and singing to the trees to awaken the plants and to scare away evil spirits to ensure a good harvest of fruit.
Wassailing dancers and a local band will provide the evening's entertainment while Jo Robson Catering will spoil you with a locally inspired 2 course meal at the charming Canobolas Hall. Your ticket also includes a drink on arrival - either See Saw Prosecco or a Pioneer Brewing Co. beer.
Additional drinks will be available for $7 per glass or $25 per bottle for wine and $7 for a 375ml beer.
