Each year, in the warm, sunny month of July, the city of Kelowna transforms into a community hub, alive with the spirit of celebration. This comes with the onset of Westside Daze, a multi-day event that paints the city with fun, camaraderie, and culture.

Westside Daze, celebrated annually, is a community-driven event that takes pride in showcasing the local spirit of Kelowna and its western suburbs. As an attendee, you are in for many activities and entertainment. The event usually kicks off with a parade marching through the city streets, featuring local businesses, community groups, and plenty of festive flair. Families with children will particularly enjoy the Kids' Fair, a segment of the festival dedicated to games, rides, and child-friendly entertainment.

For music enthusiasts, the Westside Daze includes a series of free concerts at Memorial Park. The lineup, showcasing a mix of local and regional talent, caters to a wide range of musical tastes. The concert series culminates in a spectacular fireworks display over Okanagan Lake, which is a sight to behold.

Another highlight is the Show & Shine Car Show, drawing in car enthusiasts from all over the region. The event showcases an array of vintage, classic, and exotic vehicles alongside food vendors and live music.

Various food stalls serving both local and international cuisine are a major draw to the event. Fresh local produce, artisanal foods, and the aroma of delicious street food fill the air, ensuring nobody leaves hungry.

Before visiting, keep in mind that Westside Daze is an outdoor event. Dress in comfortable clothing and be prepared for warm weather. Also, while entry to the event is free, some activities and food stalls might charge fees, so it's good to carry some cash.

Visiting Westside Daze is a chance to become a part of the local community, experience their warmth, and make lasting memories. Whether you're a local resident or a visitor to the beautiful city of Kelowna, Westside Daze offers a unique opportunity to enjoy summer in Canada's wine country.
