Festivals Kelowna is a non-profit society that produces free outdoor programs and events including Parks Alive!, the Kelowna Buskers Program, the Celebrate Canada Day – Kelowna festivities, and New York New Year's Eve family celebration.

We proudly work with the City of Kelowna, our major funder and a key supporter of community-focused, accessible, cultural festivals and events to animate our parks and public spaces.

Come visit us in our new offices at #100-260 Harvey Avenue in the Commerce Centre at the corner of Harvey Avenue and Water Street.
