The District of West Kelowna, with the generous support of key sponsor Reuter Real Estate, presents the inaugural Global Music Fest on Saturday, August 24th at Memorial Park, part of the popular Music in the Park summer concert series.
Global Music Fest is a family-friendly event offering another free entertainment option for West Kelowna residents, flavoured with the many cultures of the Okanagan Valley. The event will take place from 5 to 10 p.m. with Kids Zone activities from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
“The inaugural Music in the Park series last year was a resounding success and Council threw its whole-hearted support behind making this year’s Music in the Park bigger and better,” says Mayor Doug Findlater. “With the addition of Global Music Fest, the brainchild of Ryan Donn and the Intercultural Society of the Central Okanagan, residents and our friends from other Okanagan communities have access to new and exciting cultural activities in West Kelowna.”
Donn is the Creative Director with Creative Okanagan and originally created Global Music Fest as an artistic showcase for Global Citizen Week and has worked with the Intercultural Society of the Central Okanagan to host the event in Kelowna four times. In securing a partnership with the District of West Kelowna to bring a new event across the water, he says the organizing team is placing even more emphasis on young families with a kid’s zone, multicultural food fair and all ages entertainment lineup worthy of pushing back bedtime.
