Kelowna has something for everyone this coming Canada Day long weekend. Whether you want to swim in the lake, dine in the vineyards, take in a festival, listen to live music, explore and learn with your family, or all of the above... the event selection this year will have you wearing red and white to show your Canadian pride. 

Be it a selfie captured with your new cell phone or a more sophisticated image thoughtfully crafted on a digital SLR, recording a visit to Kelowna means you’ve got to make the most of your photo opportunities. Good lighting makes a difference (the golden hour is extra special on Okanagan Lake), so does attention to detail. But nothing is as important as having the right subject. Here are a few locations to help you really deliver the magic while exploring everything Kelowna has to offer—from the mountainside to the lakeside.

Your best friend has decided to tie the knot and you’ve gleefully agreed to be her Maid of Honour. Now you’ve got a bachelorette to plan and you want the event to be something she’ll never forget.

They say the way to someone's heart is through their stomach. Whether you are visiting Kelowna, or if you live in the area, taking your valentine to one of the cooking classes at the romantic Mission Hill Winery in West Kelowna may be the perfect date night activity.  Besides… who wouldn’t want to drink wine in class?!? Sipping on Okanagan wine is a part of this lesson!

The past couple weeks have seen the mercury drop in Kelowna and while we all bundled up, the icy cold weather brought something magical and quintessentially Canadian to our local vineyards. 

Arriving in Canada for the last week of September, the 2016 Royal Tour of Canada included a stop right here in Kelowna. We were honoured to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Kelowna this past week.
