The Weekend Need To Know: Family Day Long Weekend

Thursday, Feb 08 09:20 AM

If you're like many other people in Kelowna, the weekend for you is all about enjoying the city at your own leisurely pace. With so much going on in our community, it can be hard to fit all the things you want to do into your busy schedule. KelownaNow is here to help!


Each weekend we'll compile a list of five or more things you need to know about. Whether it's community events, treats you have to try, killer sales or where to find some dance-worthy live music, we've got you covered on activities you need to KNow to make the most of your weekend.

HOPE In Her Eyes

An event the highlights female empowerment as well as strives to make a difference for women both in Canada and around the world, this event will see local charities, Her International and H.O.P.E. Outreach, coming together to host a one of a kind fundraising event.

From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Laurel Packing House, guests will be treated to an evening inspired by Nepalese culture, with a delicious dinner, an art auction and the opportunity to learn more about ways to empower women.

Heartbreak! At Milkcrate


If you’re hungry for some live music, Milkcrate Records has you covered this Friday night. Local musicians Sammi Morelli, Michael S.e Elliott and Bo Jahura will be ready to serenade the audience at 6:30 p.m.

The name of the event may seem anti-Valentine's, but it is all about using music to embrace the heartache we have gone through. The event will have more than just music, including great giveaways. Tickets are $15 at the door!

Kelowna Spring Home Show


The Home Show is returning to Prospera Place this weekend! Kicking off Saturday at 10 a.m., the home show will bring together the best vendors in everything to do with a home from decorating to design. Get your questions answered and find some inspiration this weekend. The event carries over to Sunday as well.

Adoptions at Peachland Bosley’s


Peachland will be getting their own Bosley’s and to celebrate their grand opening this weekend, they will be having kitten adoptions on Saturday afternoon. If you’re in need of some pet supplies or a new furry friend, Bosley’s Peachland will be a great place to visit from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Hot Air Balloon Fiesta
