Activate Your Imagination
In and around Vernon has a heritage that is rich in arts and culture that is woven into the fabric of our people and our city. Take a few hours or spend the entire day discovering the rich history and culture of Vernon and the North Okanagan. You will experience a diversity of art galleries, artist studios, live music and theatre, outdoor murals and adventures to excite your imagination.
Explore our endless mountain and lakeside trails, where raptors soar over ancient grasslands. We have world-class resorts, boutique shopping, championship golf courses, family-friendly attractions, outstanding hiking, biking and ski trails, and great beaches.
Taste the flavour of our region at boutique and estate wineries to the north and south, craft cideries, craft brewery, meadery, award-winning distillery, boutique food shops, farmgate stores and year-round farmers’ market as you travel along our Tasting Trail.
We celebrate a lot of things here. We have events year-round, so come visit anytime and take in an event or two.
Come in any season and you’ll find there are plenty of ways to relax, recharge, and energize yourself. We invite you to immerse yourself in an Okanagan holiday, Vernon style. Visit Tourism Vernon’s website for events, attractions and amenities. #ExploreVernon
