Kelowna has a vibrant and diverse music scene filled with highly-talented artists and plenty of great shows, but it’s not every night that you can catch Order of Canada recipients and JUNO nominees performing for FREE! However, on Wednesday, August 16th, you can do just that.

The arrival of summer is one of my favourite times of year. I enjoy being outdoors with friends on patios, hiking with my dog, spending the day at the beach, and of course taking in all the great outdoor events in this beautiful city I call home. Here are a few of the events taking place this summer that should be on your must-attend list. See you there!

When I think of the roaring twenties, I think of flapper dresses and smoky cabarets with candle lit tables. The Kelowna Actors Studio transports you back to that era with their cabaret-style dinner theatre which features F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby from May 31st to June 17th.

Every fall, the picturesque community of Lake Country bustles with activities and performances as they host 300+ artists from all over British Columbia and Alberta at the community's popular Lake County ArtWalk. This annual event sees more than 7,000 art-loving spectators so most locals have either attended or are familiar with it. What fewer people are aware of is the fantastic Lake Country Art Gallery and adorably rustic coffee shop located at 10356 Bottom Wood Lake Rd.

We’re lucky to have a thriving music scene in Kelowna. Not only does that mean that we have a healthy number of high-quality local bands and excellent live music venues, but we also get some big names hitting the stages to entertain local audiences.

BC Family Day Adventures in Kelowna

When I heard that Family Day, celebrated in most of Canada, was also becoming a BC Stat Holiday - I was thrilled!  Another paid day off! And the best part is, the day is dedicated to families. Life gets busy and unfortunately, family fun-times often gets replaced with work and chore-times. So, having a whole day to enjoy with your family is a really welcomed, especially in the middle of winter.
