Satisfaction Week formally begins right this moment in Kelowna
After several pandemic postponements, the Pride celebrations are finally returning to Kelowna.
Today is the official start of Pride Week and the Kelowna Pride Society (KPS) has big plans.

All events during Kelowna Pride Week 2021, with the exception of the Pride Cabaret and the mask-making workshop, are free.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there is no Pride March on the program this year. Still, the KPS hopes that community members will enjoy their creative solution – the Downtown Bike Derby.
The Bike Derby is open to anyone who can ride a bike, and KPS encourages community members to showcase themselves in their best Pride threads. It is requested that attendees register in advance so they have an idea of the numbers.
“We stopped counting the number of times we flipped due to COVID-19, but we know we are not alone,” said Dustyn Baulkham, general manager of the Kelowna Pride Society.
“There’s so much work behind the scenes and we’re all excited that Pride Week is finally here. We hope the community will join us in celebrating Kelowna Pride Week 2021! “
