Culture Days events organized by the city

Plenty to do on Saturday in Kelowna to celebrate Culture Days.

On Saturday, Sept. 29, as part of the Culture Days celebrations, the City of Kelowna will host two events that give residents a chance to experience the city’s cultural scene and showcase their creative side.

Culture Caching

Whether it is your first time or you are an experienced treasure hunter, this free event will guarantee you some fun. Culture Caching will send you on a scavenger hunt in search of more than 20 “culture caches” using a GPS receiver or a smart phone to document your finds.

You will be eligible to win great prizes, including theatre and performance tickets, gift certificates as well as guest passes to the Parkinson Recreation Centre and H2O Fitness and Adventure Centre.

The event runs throughout the Cultural District from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To participate, you can download the instruction sheet online at

Participants can document their experiences and “finds” online by uploading photos and videos to the City’s Facebook page at or by emailing

Dancing in the Park at Stuart Park

Come out for an afternoon of dancing in the park as we bring back one of the summer’s favourite programs and take you dancing around the world.

Learn traditional dance steps from qualified instructors in different cultural styles.

Each instructor will present a 20-minute lesson in a different style, with time at the end to enjoy your own freestyle interpretation.

No need for a partner. Come alone or grab a friend and come get your cultural groove on. The event runs from 1 to 4 p.m. at Stuart Park.

Culture Days is a collaborative coast-to-coast-to-coast volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. Artists, organizations and community groups in Kelowna will be hosting free, participatory arts and culture activities during Culture Days.
