Okanagan's Got Talent finale to live stream Saturday evening

Okanagan shows off talent

The long-awaited Okanagan’s Got Talent finale will happen Saturday after being pushed back due by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The call out to artists began in June 2019, and by September 2019 the talent show had received more than 140 applications from across the Southern Interior.

Events ran weekly on Sunday nights, showcasing a dozen or more artists per week.

“We saw bands, dancers, comedians, robots, jugglers, contortionists, singers, percussionists, magicians and so much more,” says organizer Peter Kaz.

The first round, quarter finals, and semi finals ran for six months – but the finale, which was supposed to run the third week of March last year, was put on hold.

“With support from the Lake Country Arts Council, we were able to secure a venue to host the finale,” says Kaz.

The event will take place behind closed doors, with under 50 people in attendance, including family, crew and judges.

It will be live streamed Saturday at 5 p.m. on the Okanagan’s Got Talent Facebook page.

“We thank our numerous judges and sponsors for taking this journey with us and a huge acknowledgement to all the artists that participated!” said Kaz.

"This event was extremely exciting and entertaining, all due to the fact that we have a massive amount of spectacular artists in the area.”
