Kelowna Activities to do in Spring
Spring in Kelowna is full of bright skies, warming temperatures, and blossoming flowers. There’s lots to do and see and many wineries will be reopening. Snow in Kelowna usually melts around March or April and the season often changes quite quickly. I’m still amazed every year how it can go from being snowy one week to almost tee-shirt weather the next. It rains a bit in spring but usually not much since Kelowna is a semi-arid desert.

Kelowna Activities: Gardens
There are so many beautiful gardens to visit in the spring. My absolute favorite is the Okanagan Herb and Lavender Farm. They have a beautiful self-guided walking tour that you can go on to explore the lavender fields. When you start the tour a staff member gives you a card and on it, you can write a wish to be hung on their wishing tree. There’s also a gift shop full of lavender soaps, essential oils, hydrosols, and herb mixtures.
Another really popular garden in Kelowna is Kasugai gardens. The park is a symbol of the friendship between Kelowna and Kelowna’s sister city in Kasugai, Japan. Due to this friendship, Kasugai gardens has a very Japanese style and is home to plenty of koi fish.
If you want to visit a larger garden I would highly recommend going for a bit of a drive and checking out Summerland Ornamental Gardens. This is probably the biggest of all the gardens I’ve mentioned so far and is absolutely breathtaking. There are so many beautiful flowers to see and gorgeous views of the mountains, valley, and lake. They also put on a variety of events throughout the year.
Spring Festivals and Events
Some of the spring festivals and events you can attend include Peak Pride, the Spring Okanagan Wine Festival, and the Great Okanagan Beer Festival. Peak Pride happens at Big White Ski Resort during the month of April and is a super fun event for LGBTQ+ people and allies. The Spring Okanagan Wine Festival is a must for your Kelowna bucket list as Kelowna is home to some of the best wine in the world. The Great Okanagan Beer Festival is a must-do as well as you can enjoy a growing range of local craft beers right on the lake!
