This Saturday from 5-10pm a new free festival launches in West Kelowna. It will celebrate multiculturalism, provide some great interactive kids activities, and offer an assortment of ethnic food vendors.
Situated behind the Johnson Bentley Pool, Memorial Park will host this free and family focused festival. 
The stage schedule is as follows:
5:00pm Stan Jack, Westbank First Nations dancer
5:20pm Strongman Show by Team Xtreme 
5:45pm Alpha Yaya Diallo, Juno Award winning performer
7:00pm Ezra Kwizera, whose music is a zesty mix of Reggae, Soca, East African Bongo and Pop
8:00pm Fireshow by Team Extreme 
8:45pm En Karma, Canada's top Bhangra band
Here is a quick video showcasing what is in store on stage this Saturday in West Kelowna.

About the Author

Ryan Donn
Singer/songwriter, event producer, digital creative, Councillor at the City of Kelowna

I love creating and connecting. For years I spent most of my time in Kelowna creating songs, and those songs have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, etc..

I use this column to connect some of our local creatives, events, unique local projects/non-profits, and occasionally a random column about our city. 

Originally from Scotland, I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years. My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities).

In 2014 I was elected to Kelowna City Council. 

Opinions are my own and don't represent the City of Kelowna, Festivals Kelowna or Creative Okanagan.
