We eat three times a day, give or take. If you ate at a different place in Downtown Kelowna for every meal, you wouldn’t eat at the same place for over a month. That includes the chocolate shops. Yes, chocolate can be a meal.

The Taste of Downtown is a self-guided walking tour of Downtown Kelowna's restaurants, pubs and cafes on Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 12pm-3pm. What better way to celebrate the variety and diversity of Downtown Kelowna's 80-plus eateries and drinkeries than by making the acquaintance of a couple dozen free delicious samples?

And don't forget to say hello to the nice people who make them. They like to chat. The weather is a nice ice-breaker. Maybe compliment their outfit.

Did we mention there are prizes? Yes you can eat your way to free things. Entering is easy and delicious.


1. Grab a FREE Passport in advance from one of the participating restaurants or on Saturday, September 19th at one of the Downtown Kelowna Info Booths, beside the RCA (421 Cawston) or in front of Safeway (697 Bernard) at 11:30am sharp, while supplies last (one per person).

Taste of Downtown Passports are in limited supply, so be speedy.

2. Visit participating restaurants on Saturday, September 19th between 12pm and 3pm with your Passport. You can't win if you don't stop in. That rhymes.

3. Collect required number of coveted autographs from each colour category. Eat a delicious free sample*.

4. Enter. Drop your Passport off at one of the Downtown Kelowna Info Booths by 4:00pm. The booths with the nice people in it.

5. Wait. We'll announce the winners on and social media on September 21st, 2015.
