Outdoor Event Planning
With Kelowna's mild climate and great summer weather, our City has played host to many different outdoor events, including sporting events, festivals, concerts, fairs, parades and weddings.
Our Outdoor Events office is designed as a one-stop shop for event organizers, making it easier and more efficient for event organizers to obtain all the necessary approvals and permits required to host an event in the City of Kelowna. Our Outdoor Events staff uses their knowledge and expertise to facilitate the approval process for event organizers. From the initial inquiry to issuing the permit, an Outdoor Event Coordinator will guide event organizers through all aspects of the outdoor event process.
