“I wanted to send an email because I have been in Kelowna this week – basically on holiday – but I have been absolutely delighted to see such a structured approach to deliver “experiences”. The amount of events that Festival Kelowna put on, the piano’s around the town and just the branding – its brilliant. For being such a small town and, in my opinion, in the middle of nowhere is actually punching above the weight of the town. I really am absolutely amazed and surprised and love it.”
