From the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU to all who came out and supported The Dream Café Fundraisers to re-launch the Dream.
TOM + THOMPSON WILSON & STEPHEN FEARING
We cannot send enough gratitude to Tom Wilson (aka – LeE HARVeY OsMOND), Thompson Wilson, Stephen Fearing, and Matt Andersen for their generous gift of their time and talent. This would have never happened without you. These selfless offers combined with the hard work of our staff and volunteers, donations from Tin Whistle Brewing Co., Cannery Brewing, and Crescent Hill Winery, and the outpouring of support from our Dreamers made for a fantastic success.
The Dream Café is a music venue and restaurant located on Colourful Front Street in Penticton, BC. We are currently on a limited entertainment schedule, and hope to resume weekly live entertainment in 2017. The Dream was established in 2001 and has held over 100 shows every year. Everything from folk, blues, rock, jazz, world and everything in between! A little something for everyone
Our menu is always changing & evolving but the essence of the Dream is always there. Our emphasis has and always will be to serve clean, healthy food with a variety of cultures represented on the menu that reflect the eclecticism that is The Dream Café.
The Dream Café is a wonderful community that has evolved around music. People from many walks of life and cultures have joined us in the audience as well as on our stage. The beauty is the energy that happens in the room. Thank you all for your continued support!
"There really is no place in the world like The Dream Cafe. It's a blessing for both the listeners in the audience and the performers on stage. It's what every venue should strive to be"
- Matt Andersen, November 16th 2016
My wife and I just saw Matt Andersen and you simply could not replicate an experience like that at a large venue. I'm not a religious man, but one could say that was 'church' in terms of the energy and lighting people up!
See, it's not 'just' the music, or 'just' the food, but the coming together of amazing talent, audience, staff and ambience, which as a whole creates an intangible quality that brings spirit and magic to one of Penticton's crown jewels. That* is the Dream Cafe.
For some perspective, an event at larger venues is easily fetching $50 + for entry and then you're an easy $7-$8 a drink. That doesn't get you a meal and that outing pales in comparison to the 'experience' you'll get at TDC.
Those who appreciate it will come! You guys are doing the right thing IMO.
Long live the dream.
