Hosting Resume

Kelowna has a proud history of hosting sport events. We put on a triathlon world championship before there was such a thing! Whether the activity is badminton or bowling, Kelowna's central location in British Columbia and easy access through Kelowna International Airport make it a preferred destination for provincial, Western Canadian, and national championships. Annual events in Kelowna range from Canada's largest open water swim to North America's longest running paved hill climb. Kelowna's energetic support, excellent facilities, and experienced volunteers shine through in our hosting resume below.
