On June 10 at 11am, the community is invited to a special party – the 50th birthday of Kelowna’s first museum building.
Significant anniversaries provide an opportunity to take note of where we have been and where we are going. The birthday celebration is presented in friendship with the Sncəwips Heritage Museum, which is operated by the Westbank First Nation. Chief Roxanne Lindley will lead a special ceremony at 11am. Following the ceremony, birthday bannock will be served and special programming will be offered by Sncəwips Heritage Museum and Kelowna Museum Society. Programming will feature the release of a joint video project funded by the Central Okanagan Foundation. In addition, there will be live performances by Levi Bent from the Syilx Language House, language workshops by Sncəwips Heritage Museum staff, and new “Un-tours” by Kelowna Museum staff.
Please join us for this significant event! Celebrate with activities, performances & community. Special guests include Chief Roxanne Lindley of Westbank First Nation, Mayor Colin Basran as well as other dignitaries and elected officials.
