Attention US Transfers

If you travel by land (car/bus/van) or via sea port (ferry) you may be able to cross the border with a passport card, which is cheaper than a passport book. For more information please visit the following page at the U.S. Department of State website.

Your U.S. dollar will be worth 20-30% more* than the Canadian dollar due to currency exchange rates. While many establishments accept U.S. cash, not all will do so. Some U.S. credit cards will automatically calculate the exchange rate without a foreign transaction fee; you may want to contact your card's customer service line to see what fee, if any, they charge.

*To see an approximation of the current exchange rate please see sites online such as http://www.xe.com.†

Osoyoos, British Columbia

Osoyoos, British Columbia

Beautiful Osoyoos Lake will provide this year’s family Feast site in British Columbia. Nestled in southern Okanagan Valley it is renowned for its warm clear water, surrounding mountains, vineyards, fruit orchards, sandy beaches and variety of outdoor activities. Osoyoos Lake spans the Canadian-U.S. border south of Penticton and north of Spokane.

The Feast venue will be at a resort on Osoyoos Lake in the town of Osoyoos. To moderate costs for Feast attendees, the resort has reduced its high-season room rates, dropped fees for room sharing, offers free parking, and all its rooms are suites with full kitchens. Food is conveniently available at neighboring markets, eateries and shops - all within walking distance. Restaurants in Osoyoos include Canadian, American, Chinese, Japanese, Asian, French, Italian, Mexican, plus winery restaurants, resorts restaurants, pizza shops, pubs, and fast-food.

Church socials will be held onsite and will include a Family Dinner & Dance, a catered Senior’s Luncheon, and separate Meet & Greets for singles, young adults, and teens. Kayaks, SUP’s, sail boats, ski boats, jet skis, pontoon boats, and boat charters are available through local vendors.

Complete information and reservation instructions will appear in the Festival Planner which is scheduled for distribution in early Spring.

Drumheller, Alberta

Drumheller is a small town located 110 kilometres northeast of Calgary, set amid Alberta's enigmatic badlands. It acts as the nexus of the so-called Dinosaur Trail. Hoodoos dominate this badlands landscape, which has featured in many a movie (mainly Westerns).

Drumheller has been the filming location for more than 50 commercials, television and cinematic productions including Running Brave, MythQuest, Unforgiven, ABC's miniseries Dreamkeeper and TNT's miniseries Into the West. In downtown Drumheller, stairs wind inside the “World’s Largest Dinosaur,” a giant model T-Rex with views from its jaw. To the southeast, the Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site explores the Drumheller Valley’s coal-mining heritage.

Tourists are attracted to Drumheller by the striking landscape of the badlands along the Red Deer River, the Drumheller Dinosaur and Fossil Museum, the Homestead Antique Museum and the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. The museum exhibits include more than 200 dinosaur skeletons (the largest display of complete dinosaur skeletons in the world) and the skulls and parts of many other animals. The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology is the only one in Canada devoted to the study of prehistoric life. It boasts 375,000 visitors a year, the largest of all provincial museum attractions. It opened on September 25, 1985. The Royal Tyrrell Museum is located in the northwest quadrant of the Town of Drumheller, in Midland Provincial Park.

This will be the first time that we will have held the feast in Drumheller.

For the Feast of Tabernacles 2018 we will again be back in beautiful Midland, Ontario, Canada. This location is unique and hard to beat!

Last year “in-house” activities were highly successful and will be brought back by popular demand in 2018.

Midland is situated on magnificent Southern Georgian Bay, a short 90 minutes from Toronto and only 30 minutes from Barrie.

The region has a natural blend of scenic landscapes, diverse wildlife and a picturesque harbor with interesting waterfront trails and attractive parkland. Fall colors are scheduled to commence during the Feast. You can also visit several historic sites that tell about the region’s rich cultures.

Shopping is available in the historic downtown, or in nearby Barrie. There are local culinary delights and a variety of restaurants throughout the area. For those who would prefer to stay put, dining will be available at the onsite restaurant which will also offer room service.

One of the reasons for returning to Midland is the warm and friendly service that we receive from the hotel staff. The Quality Inn is the premier full-service hotel in the Southern Georgian Bay area. It has an excellent re-modeled ballroom with seating capacity ideal for our needs.

Accommodations include standard rooms as well as suites that come complete with a small refrigerator, a coffeemaker; all rooms have free high-speed Internet. Room rates start at $79 for the standard room and up to $99 for a Fireplace Jacuzzi Suite. Your room rate includes a hot breakfast at the onsite Atrium Café. The naturally lit Atrium also provides a wonderful setting for interaction and relaxation ideal for connecting with spiritual members of the family. The Quality Inn also offers a heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub and sauna for added relaxation.

For those who need alternate housing, there are cottages and bed-and-breakfasts nearby.

Festival activities will again focus on the family beginning with a meet & greet evening, seniors’ brunch, Bible studies, family day, games night, variety show and more. For those who have not yet experienced the quaint historic town of Midland and the advantages of a smaller feast site, we invite you to join us this year; for those who have attended before, we extend a warm and cordial ‘welcome back!’
