Celebrating its fourth year running, Arts of the Avenue is a one day art-inspired event that takes place from 4 p.m. to 10:00 p.m every year.

"It's a good five months of planning, putting out the applications in March and the artists fill them out and we do a jury selection to make sure that the art is original," said Donna Klassen, program assistant and one of the organizers of the event.

"To see the vendors happy and successful is our main goal, if the vendors are happy then we are happy," said Klassen.

The interaction between local vendors, artists, musicians and attendees makes Arts of the Avenue one of the more exceptional ways to spend a beautiful summer evening in Kelowna.
