Expand your knowledge of history during Heritage Week in Kelowna

This year’s theme is “The Tie that Binds.”

Learn about the history of the Central Okanagan next week by celebrating Heritage Week.

Held on the first week of February, this nationally celebrated week is generally comprised of multiple events.

This year’s theme is “The Tie that Binds.”

“Heritage reaches back in time to tell stories of our near and distant pasts, to describe our present and to foretell our future,” according to Heritage BC.

Our Lives Through Our Eyes: Nk’Mip Children’s Art is an ongoing toured event held at the Okanagan Heritage Museum from Jan. 19 to April 14, on Saturdays. It is presented jointly by the museum and Kelowna Art Gallery.
