    Whether you want to be part of the action or relax and watch others take part, Summerland events have something that everyone can enjoy. In Summerland BC you can swim in the cool of winter or the heat of summer, taste wine on the patio or in the shelter of a welcoming winery, race on your bike or cruise in a classic car.

    Our events welcome spectators and participants alike with activities for all levels. You can hike a … volcano in the Giant’s Head Grind, climbing 500 metres, or maneouvre 17 hair pin corners at speed as part of the Giant’s Head Freeride longboard competition.

    Events in Summerland offer a wide variety of activities. If you’re looking for a more relaxed atmosphere listen to music in the park during the summer, or book a ride on the historic Kettle Valley Steam Railway from Easter to Fall. Even when the temperature drops you can celebrate at the wineries of Summerland during Light Up the Vines, or mark the start of the winter season with ice carving, music and Santa at the Festival of Lights.

    Summerland events and festivals exceed your expectations for the ideal day out or vacation. Try out a new event each season to see what’s on offer year round in Summerland BC.
