downtown kelowna block party

July 22, 2017

Every year, we have a good old-fashioned Downtown Kelowna Block Party and invite the whole city. We close down Bernard Avenue for possibly the biggest block party in the Okanagan. This free community event brings together fashion, food, shopping and entertainment and attracts 15,000 - 17,000 people each year for live entertainment on three street stages. Vendors line the streets with great stuff, yummy treats, children's activities, dancing, art and lots more.

The Downtown Kelowna Light Up celebrates the magic of the holiday season with family activities, music, ice skating, entertainment, visits from Santa, and, of course, the lighting of a huge tree in Stuart Park. The public is free to explore amazing shopping and great dining options, while taking part in seasonal festivities.
