Kelowna’s Waterfront Park to host one-day beer festival

The popular downtown park and lakefront walkway will be closed to the pubic—but open to festival ticket holders— May 14.

And you thought you could not drink alcohol in Kelowna’s downtown Waterfront Park?

Wrong.

Next weekend the suds will be flowing as the park hosts the second annual Great Okanagan Beer Festival.

As a result, the park, as well as the lakefront promenade and the south end of Tugboat Beach, will be closed to everyone except those who have tickets for the event from 10 a.m. Saturday, May 14 to 6 a.m. Sunday, May 15, according to Kelowna city hall.

The north end of Tugboat Beach will be accessible through walkway from Sunset Drive through Rotary Marsh.

The load-in of equipment for the beer festival will start the morning of Friday, May 13, through the Rotary Marsh walkway, and the city says the public can expect increased activity along the path and possible restrictions.

While public access to the park will be restricted during the set up, the lakefront promenade will remain open that day until 8 p.m.
