Kelowna Culture Days 2021

Music, Dance, Arts & Crafts, Cuisine, and more


Culture Days is a national campaign that seeks to promote inclusivity and participation across a broad range of culture related activities and presentations, free of charge, in communities across Canada. A key focus of the program is to promote the idea and the belief that culture is for everyone, regardless of age, geography, background, or income.

This year, Kelowna Culture Days was spread across the calendar and throughout the Cultural District between Friday, September 24 and Sunday, October 24, with many of the events happening in or around the Rotary Centre for the Arts.

NOTE - The COVID-19 pandemic along with provincial health orders have placed restrictions on capacity at events and required masks and social distancing.
