The Abbotsford-Matsqui Rotary Club’s signature event, the 20th annual Wine and Beer Festival and Silent Auction, will take place on May 24.

The event will be at the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, but this year the entrance will be moved to the Gourmet Cup/GAP entrance.

A number of standout wineries and breweries have been invited to participate.

Live jazz and blues will be played during the event, and there will be a chance to win prizes and sample fresh appetizers, provided by UFV culinary department students.

Tickets are not available at the door but can be purchased at the customer service kiosk in Sevenoaks Mall, AbbeyEye Doctors, Internetcollections.com, and Sumas Mountain Wines for $30. The festival runs 7 to 10 p.m.
