As the third-largest metropolitan area in BC, behind only Vancouver and Victoria, there are always activities and events happening in this vibrant and beautiful city. Regardless of the time of year, there are numerous LGBT2Q+ activities happening, plus hiking, boating, skiing, farm to table dining, or touring the over 40 wineries are all just minutes away.
Explore downtown Kelowna’s cultural district to see colourful galleries, amazing concerts, and shows. Take a walk along the rainbow crosswalks at the hub of Kelowna just one block away from Bernard Avenue, which is a must-visit area for the local shopping and food scene.
One of the best ways to experience the LGBT2Q+ culture of Kelowna is to visit during one of our Pride events. Traditionally in mid-June Kelowna Pride week welcomes over 5000 attendees annually and is a fun and safe way to celebrate the diverse and accepting community of Kelowna, in 2021 events will take place in September including OUT in the Valley, Kelowna's queerest wine festival. And traditionally in April, head to Big White Ski Resort for Peak Pride, an event celebrating the LGBT2Q+ skiing and snowboarding community.
