Every year during the month of June you can expect to find the city out and about celebrating in style. Some of the events you can attend include:
Come and get your stomp on! Hosted by House of Rose Winery, come out for live music, wine tastings, and grape stomping.
Join the Okanagan Valley's newest wine, craft beer, and spirits festival, which includes a welcome reception, curated wine and food tours, and a drag brunch. The next event will happen in September 2021. Check Kelowna Pride's website for updates.
The Sugarplum Ball takes place as part of the festival and is “an evening for everyone.” Over 400+ people attend and it has been named the “most inclusive and welcoming event in Kelowna.” Fun fact, the event is named after Mayor Sugarplum (Colin Basran).
At Big White Ski Resort (April) and SilverStar Mountain Resort (December) - Peak Pride is a truly Canadian experience. This is an inclusive weekend made even more magical by the backdrop of BC’s beautiful mountainous region.
