What to do in Kelowna this weekend

March 01, 2019 - 3:00 PM

KELOWNA - As we bid a not-so-fond farewell to February and welcome March into our lives, Kelowna is offering plenty of opportunities to shake the winter blahs and try something new.

Want to learn more about the original inhabitants of this land? Wildrose Native Traditions is hosting a cultural competency workshop at 470 Queensway Ave. tomorrow, March 2, at 10 a.m. The event will answer questions about Native life including reconciliation. While the event is currently sold out, there is a waiting list. You can get on it by calling 250-763-2417.

Homelessness is a major problem in the Okanagan, so why not take a few steps to end it. The Strides to End Homelessness walk starts at 4 p.m. (3 p.m. registration) at 259 Leon Ave. tomorrow. Participants can take a five kilometre walk or 10 kilometre run. Sign up or donate to the event here.

If you didn't get enough walking on Saturday, grab your shoes for the 2019 Kelowna Rain Walk on Sunday, March 3. The five kilometre walk raises money and support for cancer care. Registration opens at 9 a.m. at 1800 Parkinson Way. You can donate here.

Meet new people in a low-pressure, fun environment at the Queer-lowna coffee mixer on Sunday at the Kelowna downtown library in classroom two. There will be coffee, games, and other activities. The free event starts at 11 a.m.

Get creative at UBC Okanagan on Sunday as they paint a giant letter "E" in rainbow colours as part of Out Week. Everyone is welcome. The event starts at 2 p.m.

Show your Kelowna Rockets pride as they battle the Portland Winterhawks in back-to-back home games at Prospera Place on Saturday and Sunday. Both games start at 7:05 p.m.

Rich Homie Quan is a big name in the rap scene and he'll be bringing his unique style to Kelowna on Sunday. He's performing at the Sapphire night club starting at 9 p.m. Tickets can be found here.
