Despite some starts and stops with that fluffy white stuff falling from the sky, winter is still a week away. The solstice in Kelowna does not officially take place until Dec. 21 at 8:28 a.m. PT, to be exact. So why not take in some fun fall fare before Old Man Winter arrives?
Here are four events and activities that will help you celebrate the last of the season before the Christmas rush begins. So book your favourite Kelowna hotel and enjoy!
The popular Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market moves indoors to the Parkinson Recreation Centre in the fall and winter months. Held close to hotels in Kelowna on select Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the indoor market features regular and new vendors, selling everything from freshly harvested produce to handcrafted artisanal products. Fun for the whole family, the market also features musicians and performers as well as food concessions.
While many Okanagan vineyards start preparing for their ice wine harvest this time of year, you can still sip some delicious Kelowna wine varietals in late-fall. And better yet, you can avoid the heavy summer traffic. The Best Western Kelowna Hotel & Suites offers Okanagan wine tour packages, which include half-day or full-day Okanagan wine tours. Start your day with a hot buffet breakfast then head off in provided transportation to enjoy the beautiful views. Enjoy tastings in many of the area’s best wineries.
This time of year is usually the best time to see a concert or cheer on the local team. Kelowna has a number of venues offering everything from art exhibitions, dance, symphonic and rock concerts, live theatre productions, and hockey. They include:
There’s nothing like a little pampering to get you into a state of bliss before the holiday craziness begins. The Best Western Kelowna Hotel & Suites is one of the Kelowna hotels with pools that also offers spa packages, which includes a one night stay for two in one of its Kelowna hotel suites, a one or ½ hour massage per person in its Wellness Spa, and a $30 gift card for an evening meal or drinks at the 97 Street Pub.
