We are proud to call this community home and to share it with our visitors. Enjoy our beautiful destination; experience the spectacular surrounding nature, savour the local flavours from the area, discover who we are, and discover why this is one of the very best places to live and visit.
Tourism Kelowna leads or participates in several initiatives that promote healthy lifestyles, strengthen our economy, and protect our natural environment.
Join us as we work together to ensure our home stays beautiful for generations to come. Below are three simple steps you can take to enjoy our community and to show respect for our residents and the environment:
- Sign our pledge and make a commitment to a responsible tourism experience in our community. *coming soon
- Stop by our Kelowna Visitor Centre, a Sustainable Tourism Gold Certified community hub where you can learn about the businesses that have made a commitment to responsible tourism through the Biosphere Program, purchase transit passes, and shop for local art, clothing, and green mementoes to commemorate your trip.
- Learn about our Local Flavours program; tour a farm, orchard or vineyard and then visit a restaurant, distillery, brewery or winery to taste true farm-to-plate or glass flavours. Nothing beats local and supporting our farmers.
- Volunteer. There are numerous programs where you can donate your time and energy, including Tourism Kelowna. If you are a local resident, consider joining our volunteer team.
