Bottega Festival is a Music and Arts community gathering in Kelowna BC nestled in the trees of a 13 acre alpaca farm on the property of Bottega Farm Inn & Studio July 17-18, 2015.

Built on the 5 year success of the grassroots Lille Gard Festival, Bottega Festival will welcome a diverse crowd of all ages to experience 2 days of inspiring music, arts and entertainment. Proceeds will benefit New Horizon Romania - an organization serving the disadvantaged through education and medical services in Romania.


In 2010, on the grounds of what is now Bottega Farm Inn & Studio, the very first Lille Gard Festival was born. It was essentially a group of musician friends, artists, and music-lovers gathering together with the idea of sharing community together. It had a backyard party vibe where everyone played and came for free over the Canada Day long weekend. For 5 years, Lille Gard Festival has grown under the leadership of the TribeHouse Artist Collective and has seen an eclectic mix of artists, musicians, dancers, and entertainers share a variety of stages on the Bottega property. This year we are building on the experience we've gained and renaming the event to Bottega Festival.
