Rock The Lake Festival

Annual Classic Rock Festival in Kelowna at Prospera Place

Rock The Lake became an instant hit when it first ran in 2016. It's been an enduring success ever since.

Every year, in August, the parking lot at Prospera Place is transformed into a festival site, complete with stage, VIP areas, vendor stalls, and food trucks. It runs from Friday through Sunday. Classic Canadian Rock bands are brought in, sometimes with the addition of bands from the US or even further afield. Tickets for the next years festival generally go on sale during the current festival, and the festival often sells out quickly.

NOTE - The COVID-19 pandemic and the provincial emergency delcaration have put a hold on most large live music events in Kelowna and across BC. This years festival has been postponed until summer of 2021.

Rock The Lake was set to return for its fifth straight year at Prospera Place in the heart of downtown Kelowna. The festival was to once again run over 3 days, and feature 11 Classic Rock band performances.

(The festival has been pushed back to August 2021. The full schedule will be filled in when confirmed.)
