For the third year, our Community & Visitor Engagement team is once again travelling around Lake Country to provide mobile services to visitors and area residents. 

The 2024 season kicked off on June 1, as the team attended the Healthy Essentials Clinic in Swalwell Park, followed by Oyama Fun Days on June 2. This year, we have expanded the Lake Country team to include Supervisor, Jordyn Holt, and 4 Lake Country Community Specialists: Reid Gratz, Alex Christie, David Shao, and Zoe Leduc-Wright.

Keep your eye out for our branded truck, which will allow us to extend our reach across a wider area of the District, and haul tents and equipment more easily. You can expect to see the team at the Lake Country Farmers' Market every Friday, offering information and Lake Country-branded retail products, as well as at anticipated summer events such as Live! in Lake Country, Canada Day Celebrations, Lake Country ArtWalk, and more.

The team will also be biking on the Okanagan Rail Trail and visiting popular tourism-related businesses around town, including the Lake Country Museum & Archives, orchards, wineries, and campgrounds. If you would like to connect with our team about setting up at your Lake Country business, contact us at

Tourism Kelowna was initially awarded the contract to pilot mobile visitor services for the District of Lake Country in April 2022. The pilot, which ran successfully from mid-May to September, saw mobile visitor service initiatives launched in high-traffic locations around Lake Country, such as beaches, parks, events, and attractions, to engage with residents and visitors.

The 2024 Lake Country Mobile Visitor Centre is typically active 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday through Thursday and 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Fridays, excluding special event set-ups.
