Free Community Programs

The City of Kelowna is proud to offer no cost programming in our parks for all ages and abilities.
Residents and visitors should also check out the various free or by donation programs offered by Festivals Kelowna (like Parks Alive!).

Dancing in the Park

2013 Dancing in the park

 Kelowna Loves Culture

Dancing in the Park first took place in 2011 as part of a City initiative to promote healthy, active living by providing free dance lessons to members of the community. Zumba, hip hop and country are just some of the many dance styles featured.

The program takes place at Stuart Park and runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday in July and August.
