The fourth annual Love for Kelowna Day returns on Saturday, May 27, 2023, to pay tribute to the tourism industry in the Central Okanagan and to acknowledge all the amazing things our area has to offer residents and visitors.  

To help spread the love, encourage visitation to local businesses, and deliver additional exposure through our online channels, we are offering Tourism Kelowna Members the opportunity to be involved as partners for this full-day event. We have had an amazing response so far, with only a few spots left in the following categories:

  • Restaurant, cafe, bakery, etc.
  • Breweries, wineries, distilleries, cideries, etc.
  • Attractions & shopping

Please note: we are at capacity for accommodations, wine tours, and rentals.
