Downtown Kelowna Winter Market canceled due to pandemic – Kelowna News


This year’s Downtown Kelowna Association’s Winter Street Market has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Downtown Kelowna Association has hosted the annual market for the past three years on the first weekend in December. The weekend includes family ice skating at Stuart Park, a wide array of vendors along part of Water Street across from City Hall, tours with Santa Claus, and shows. The day ends with the official lighting of the Christmas tree in Stuart Park.

Due to COVID-19 protocols banning events of more than 50 people, the Winter Street Market cannot take place as the event attracts more than 10,000 people throughout the day.

The Downtown Kelowna Association would like to thank all of the partners who participate in the market each year. The association hopes to welcome everyone back to the winter market next year.
