Okanagan Event Centers
The Okanagan has two major event centers in the Valley where you can take in many fun events and where some big names come to entertain.
Prospera Place holds all major Kelowna events, and is located downtown near Kelowna's Waterfront Park. Kelowna has been known to hold topline entertainers such as Paul Brandt, Avril Lavigne, John Mellencamp, Bare Naked Ladies, Nickelback, Nelly Furtado, and events like Cirque Du Soleil.
The South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton also offers some large scale performers including Canadian Singer Feist, Alan Jackson, Jann Arden, Johnny Reid, Marianas Trench, Toby Keith, Brooks and Dunn, Charlie Pride, Bill Cosby, The Tragically Hip, and Blue Rodeo. (just to name a few).
And if Art & Theatre is more your preference than live music concerts and monster truck rallies (wink), there is a variety of local live theatre, and a well represented variety of arts and culture throughout the region.
One of the most unique places to take in live theatre is at the Caravan Farm Theatre near Vernon BC. This is an outdoor live theatre that puts on amazing and magical plays throughout the year, and is a very affordable form of unique entertainment for every age.
