Event Hosting Program

Kelowna has a long history of hosting a variety of events, and supporting their continued growth, success and sustainability. By recognizing the benefits that events bring to the community and the associated costs to organizers in hosting, the City of Kelowna has established the Event Hosting Program.

The intent of the Event Hosting Program is to recognize and support events that reflect Kelowna’s principles and values, and enrich the community. This program will contribute to an events’ health and sustainability so they can remain an integral part of our vibrant community. The Event Hosting Program is application-based and consists of three categories; each having their own set of objectives and criteria.
