WHAT IS the winter street market?

The annual Downtown Kelowna Winter Street Market & Tree Lighting is returning for its 31st year on December 1, 2019. This free community event invites you and your crew Downtown to help us welcome the Holiday season. On Water St. you can indulge in some festive sweets and treats, munch on some delicious street food, or sip your hot chocolate by a cozy fire. At Stuart Park you will find live entertainment, activities for all ages, skating, food, and we can’t forget - Santa! Once you’ve taken all that excitement in, we will finish the evening off by lighting up the giant tree.

Here are some fun things we had at the 2018 event:

  • Browse the vendors at the Winter Street Market
  • Come down to Stuart Park and take a photo with Santa
  • Make a craft at the Kelowna Art Gallery
  • Go for a skate on the rink at Stuart Park
  • Browse the Downtown shops
  • Take in the live music and performances by the skating rink
  • Warm up with some hot chocolate around the fire


The heart of this event is located at Stuart Park (between the skating rink and the Kelowna Yacht Club), but there are lots of additional things happening in the surrounding area. Leave the car at home and walk, run, bike or bus to this awesome event. But if you choose to drive, there’s lots of easy-to-find parking.
