We had an amazing time at our 2017 Taste of Downtown and we hope you did too! We were able to raise over $5000 for the Central Okanagan Food Bank all thanks to you! Check back in Fall 2018 for information about next year's event.

Entering is easy and delicious.

† Passports are only available in advance at Mosaic Books. Minimum $5 cash donation per Passport. Proceeds to the Central Okanagan Food Bank. Limit 6 Passports per person
* Samples available until supplies last


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 shop. 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 23, 2017 from 12pm-3pm. What better way to celebrate the variety and diversity of Downtown Kelowna's 90-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.
