Downtown Kelowna Block Party


Block Party is turning 25, and we're going BIG

Saturday August 9, 2014   |   11AM - 5PM
Kerry Park & Bernard Ave.

Family, friends, dogs, shopping, food, music and fun… who doesn’t love a good old fashion Block Party? The new Bernard Avenue will be closed to traffic and lined with over 130 vendors offering great deals, yummy treats, children’s activities, music and lots more for the whole gang.

We’ve got lots of free stuff like a dog agility show and yoga classes; a Downtown Kelowna Fashion Show at 1:30pm; face painting and funky hair studios; soldiers and army jeeps; a climbing wall and even a TELUS Bouncy Castle Park! We can’t forget the Wentworth Musical Petting Zoo… no animals here, just lots of fun and instruments for your epic Guitar Hero solos. There will be awesome entertainment going on all day at the three street stages, too. Seriously, you’ll be singing, moving and grooving before you know it. Don’t miss The Boom Booms at 3:30pm on the Westcorp Main Stage. This is only a sneak peek into the awesomeness of this Block Party. So if we may reference a solid 80’s saying, be there or be square! When else do people get to party in the middle of a shiny, new street?

The Downtown Kelowna Block Party presented by Interior Savings takes place in Kerry Park and along Bernard Avenue from Richter St. to Abbott Street. This event is open to the general public for FREE.

Don't miss a thing, check out the full schedule below.  Or download your copy HERE.
