This summer, #meetmeonbernard is happening from July 1 to September 6. Bernard Avenue in Downtown Kelowna is transforming to a pedestrian street from St. Paul Street all the way to Okanagan Lake and will have patios, performances, programs, art installations, and more.
Below you can find all of the events, programs, performances, and happenings that will be taking place on Bernard Avenue throughout the Summer. Click here for information on getting to Bernard Avenue.
Tourism Kelowna will have a Mobile Visitor Centre location set up on Bernard Avenue at the Neighbourhood Plaza. Staff and volunteers will be onsite from approximately 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day.
We encourage everyone to utilize public transportation, car pooling, or active transportation to access Bernard Avenue this summer. Public Transit riders can stop at the Queensway Transit Exchange using popular routes such as 1, 5, 10, 11, and 97 Express.
Bicycle riders can connect to downtown using multi-modal corridors of Abbott Street, Cawston Avenue, The Okanagan Rail Trail, and the Waterfront Promenade, or on street bicycle lanes of Bernard Avenue, Clement Avenue, and Water Street.
Parking for motor vehicles can be best accessed from one of Downtown Kelowna’s parkades including the Chapman Parkade, Library Parkade, or Memorial Parkade. Oversize vehicles can access parking at the City of Kelowna’s City Park Parking Lot, or the Reef Parking Lot at Prospera Place.
