The Downtown Kelowna Association (DKA) represents all businesses and commercial property owners in the Downtown core of our city. The DKA acts in the best interests of our members to promote Downtown Kelowna as a thriving and safe place to work, live and play.
For the last 3 years, the DKA has presented a unique, fun, family experience at the annual Winter Street Market the first weekend of December. This unique event included family skating at Stuart Park, diverse vendors along a closed section of Water Street in front of City Hall, children’s visits with Santa Claus and live entertainment. The day wrapped up with the official lighting of the tree beside the rink in Stuart Park.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and how we plan events such as Winter Street Market. Current Public Health Orders include the prohibition of any event that would create a gathering of 50 or more persons. The Winter Street Market attendance figures have grown each year to a point of over 10,000 people over the course of the one-day event.
The priority of the DKA is the health and safety of our staff and all who visit Downtown Kelowna. In accordance with Dr. Bonnie Henry’s Order dated October 9, 2020, the Downtown Kelowna Association is cancelling the 2020 edition of the Winter Street Market.
We thank all our partners who participate in this event every year. We hope to see you again in 2021.
