As the summer solstice and longest day of the year has now come and gone the Tourism Kelowna Visitor Centre has been amping up its services for the season. The Visitor Centre is now open seven days per week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

You may have also noticed a few new faces at the downtown and airport visitor centre locations. We now have 5 summer staff and 32 volunteers between the two locations. Over the past month the Visitor Sales and Services Staff and Volunteers have been touring the Central Okanagan on 6 different familiarization tours. These tours allow our staff to become familiar with different properties and businesses, allowing for a more personalized and effective approach with inquiring visitors. If you are interested in having the staff visit your location, or speaking with the staff at a monthly meeting please contact me at

During the summer months the Visitor Centre will continue to manage the distribution of the Kelowna Visitor Guide, Wine Trails Guide and Farm to Table Guide. If you would like copies of any or all of these guides for your business please contact us at 250-861-1515 extension 201.
