Penticton – The Sunny Okanagan’s Favourite Beach Town

About Penticton

Making Penticton a primary location for a fall vacation!  Combine our jazz festival, wine tasting, cycling through the vineyards, hiking, and all levels of accommodation. Known as the South Okanagan’s favourite beach town, the fall is also spectacular! Swim in the warm water of Lake Okanagan, or book a winery and vineyard tour before or after the jazz festival. Stay in one of our comfortable hotels or motels or B&Bs.

For RV owners and campers, there are plenty of sites to choose from. If you are a hiking enthusiast, we have easy or moderate trails that showcase the stunning panoramic views of Skaha and Okanagan Lake, Penticton, and Naramata. Be sure to bring your camera, plenty of drinking water, and stay on the trails for safety.

If you’ve brought along your bike, the spectacular Kettle Valley Rail Trail runs north of Penticton all the way to Kelowna, and south too, with many easy access points along the way.

While in town, shop for fresh fall produce, local baking and bread and enjoy dining in one of our local restaurants. Tour the main street for art, and locally made soap, candles and other crafts at the farmer’s market. There’s so much to do in Penticton!

We look forward to meeting you!

FAQ & Contact


Have a question?

Get in touch with us.

How does the all-day pass work?

Your all–events pass entitles you to admission to all venues during festival hours and your individual day pass entitles you to the same on the appropriate day. Your pass must be visible to volunteers at all times and is required for entrance to the venues and for use of the free shuttle service.

Can I buy my pass during the festival?

Purchasing the passes during the festival is easy. You can purchase them at the registration table at the Trade & Convention Centre, which operates as our headquarters.

Will I need to find parking near the venues?

Leave your car at home! We are pleased to offer complimentary shuttle service between sponsoring hotels, and the venues, from:

  • Friday – 2 p.m. until 10:00 pm
  • Saturday – 9:00 a.m. until 11 pm
  • Sunday – 8:00 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The shuttle stops are located near the entrance of each venue. Please note there may be delays depending on timing (we use the shuttles to transport the bands too!) and so we ask for your patience. Plan ahead. Our Shuttle drivers are volunteers, and tips are not accepted but smiles are. 

If you are not sure if your hotel is sponsoring, please ask at the front desk at the time of booking.

If you require special assistance with a pick-up from a sponsoring hotel, please contact our Dispatch Centre at 250-490-2347 to make these arrangements.

Can I take photos or videos?

No professional videotaping, photographs or audio recording is allowed during performances. Media representatives are asked to contact the venue managers in advance, for access to the venue and for permission to take photographs.

Will performers be selling their CDs?

Yes, individual bands and performers will gladly sell you audio recordings of their music. These are typically available at individual performances. Or you may visit CD Central inside the Trade & Convention Centre.

Who do I call for medical attention?

We sincerely hope that you do not need these services but if you do, please contact any Festival Volunteer. A medical clinic is located at 162 – 1848 Main Street in Penticton (250-493-5228). The hospital is at 550 Carmi Avenue (250-492-4000). For emergency services please call 911.

Are the events fully accessible?


Is smoking allowed?

All of our venues are designated non-smoking.

Can I dance during a performance?

Please do! For the enjoyment of those spectators that can’t sit still, dance floors are located at all venues except at the S.S. Sicamous.
