making the scene
in downtown kelowna
Way back in the day, it was the place to be. High schoolers would drive their cars up and down Bernard from Water St to Richter St looking to see who else was hanging out. We're talking pre cell phone days.
It still hosts many pubs and restaurants that provide live music and a wide variety of food, from pub fare to mediterranean and asian.
Add to that a wide selection of boutique stores, coffee shops, hotels and banks and Bernard Ave truly is the heart of downtown Kelowna. In the summer months it fills with both locals and tourists as they stroll up and down the avenue and take in all it
has to offer, as well as wander off up the boardwalk along the lake and over to the cultural district.
Music and other arts & culture events happening along and around Bernard Ave.
NOTE - The COVID-19 pandemic and the provincial emergency delcaration have put a hold on live music performances and other public gatherings in Kelowna and across BC. As such, we encourage you to verify with the venues of listed events
regarding any upcoming shows that we have listed here on this page.
