The East Kelowna Market takes place at the very quaint East Kelowna Hall, and tomorrow they have a very special event to liven up your day.

Take a drive to the beautiful countryside and appreciate the gorgeous farmland, orchard, and vineyards that make our home so stunning.

There will be a free cranberry sauce workshop (for the first 15 people! Email to reserve a spot), and you can make a bird feeder to take home! Not to mention the variety of vendors and food items available to browse and purchase.

The Kelowna Corn Maze

Location: 539 Valley Road
Time: Saturday & Sunday at 11 am - 11 pm, Monday to Friday at 2 pm - 11 pm

The Kelowna Cornmaze is back and bigger than ever! The maze reopened for the season yesterday at their new location, which is an impressive 150,000 square feet. The stalks of corn stand as high as 12 feet.

The maze features over 20 shipping containers that house nightmarish scenes. If jump scares and horror isn’t your thing, the maze is the perfect place for families to visit during the day, as the containers stay closed until after sunset.
