KELOWNA - Over 40 local artists will have the city as their stage this weekend.
A series of free shows and cultural events start this Friday to kick off the fourth year of Kelowna's Culture Days. From September 27 to 29 venues throughout the city invite the public to check out a variety of local talent in the arts and culture scene.
From a downtown culture crawl to a traditional Japanese tea ceremony in the Kasugai gardens, the events promise to blur the line between audience and performance.
Local spoken-word artist Rawle James will give a sneak peak of the festivities by performing for city councillors today at their afternoon meeting.
Cultural services manager, Sandra Kochan says a thriving art community joins Kelowna with other cities across the country.
