Local Flavours Program

Generate visitor traffic with this proven, self-guided tour.

The Local Flavours Program is a self-guided tour that generates visitor traffic for participating businesses through expanded exposure and cross-promotion. Through the program, the Central Okanagan comes alive as residents and visitors can celebrate the connection between local farmers, artisan producers, local chefs, and mixologists. Mobile passes, powered by Bandwango technology, are easily added to pass-holder mobile phones with the pass being promoted at Visitor Centres, at attractions and accommodations throughout the Central Okanagan, and on Tourism Kelowna's website and social media channels.
