Kelowna is one great big beautiful playground.
Sure, we unveil new and improved venues and usher in visitors through the 10th busiest airport in Canada. But to appreciate the beauty of events in Kelowna, you’ve got to see the big picture. Kelowna itself is a spectacular lakeside venue with beaches, bike paths, championship golf courses, mountain parks, orchards and award-winning wineries. By offering “venues within a venue” as we describe it, Kelowna is creating value for all your participants and spectators. Visitors can pair sport competitions with snowboarding or fruit picking with wine festivals. Kelowna is centrally located in BC’s beautiful Okanagan Valley and easily accessible by air. With the area’s 4,500 guest rooms, you can stay close to where you play or close to where the play is showing. With all of its drama, Kelowna throws in a warm, dry climate, free of charge.
