Bernard Avenue

Meet me on Bernard has wrapped for the summer 2021 season! 

Monday Sept. 6 was the final full day of the inaugural 10-week open street program, which saw patios, public art, parklets and ample space for pedestrians this summer along four blocks of Bernard Avenue in downtown Kelowna. Bernard Avenue will reopen to vehicle traffic by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 9. The road will remain closed Tuesday and Wednesday for takedown, however, area businesses remain open and available to the public.

Keep enjoying great patio space this fall - the sidewalk seating program has been extended into the fall to continue to provide added space for local businesses amid ongoing public health orders and associated restrictions.
