O'Keefe Ranch

The Ranch was founded in 1867, and in its earliest days was at the end of the wagon road into the Okanagan Valley and the site of the stagecoach depot. It was a small, self-contained community, with a post office, blacksmith shop, grist mill, and even its own church and cemetery.

Yoga with Goats is back! Join Samantha Richardson for a season of yoga with four legged friends.

Ticket includes a one-hour yoga session suitable for beginners, prior to the Ranch opening. Yoga is located outdoors in the company of the Ranch's goats. Each goat has its own personality to woo you over, whether they are looking for some extra scratches, trying to make you laugh or just want to take a nap under your downward dog, you never know what they will do! Bring your own mat, but maybe not your favourite as our goats may try to nibble at it.

Afterwards, enjoy the Ranches grounds, take a tour of the mansion, visit the general store, and explore the buildings. Each ticket includes a complimentary general store candy bag. If you book on a Saturday, you can also enjoy the many role play artists including live music and song, demonstrations, school sessions and much, much more. Allow yourself about 2 hours to see the grounds.

Yoga with Goats runs from June 16th to August 28th, 2022.

"Kick off the weekend with the Cowboy Dinner Show and Campfire. This popular event is back for one night only and is being featured at the Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival. Tour the ranch and be hosted by a character from the early days of the O’Keefe Ranch. Learn how to rope like a real cowboy then sit down at 6:30 to Cowboy Cuisine and cash bar, and let Rob Dinwoodie and band Open Range with historian, author and cowboy poet Ken Mather weave the tale of the BC Cowboy through song, poetry and story. As in past Cowboy Dinner Shows, this year will include a drama that depicts real characters of the BC west. The cowboy evening closes around the campfire as in the days of the Old West. Sing songs under the stars and hear stories that will bring the west to life. You won’t want to miss this kick off event to the Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival weekend."
