Okanagan July Events

Great Summer Festivals & Celebrations

Okanagan July events, festivals and celebrations are plentiful and fun for all ages.

When July rolls around the farmer's markets are well under way, orchards and fruit stands are stocked with fruit in season, boats are out on the lakes, and beach lovers are settling in to the relaxation of summer holidays.

The July 1 Canada Day holiday is a busy long weekend holiday and the beginning of summer vacation.

Everything is alive and busy around the valley, and the weather is just perfect. :-)

Here are just some of the wonderful summer celebrations and festivals that you can enjoy. We hope you can be in the Okanagan for some of these wonderful July celebrations.
