The South Okanagan is one of the greatest places to spend some time and the summer months are particularly lively as the vineyards spring to life, the sun shines, and people flock to the lake. Over the past few years, the local music scene has continued to flourish and this summer is a great time to experience live music at incredible venues throughout the South Okanagan. If you’re staying at Watermark Beach Resort this summer, we suggest you spend an evening with fellow music lovers at one of the many great concerts in our region.
Osoyoos Music In The Park
This is the first year for Osoyoos Music In The Park, a free concert series that takes place each weekend at the Gyro Bandshell, literally steps from Watermark Beach Resort. There’s a great lineup with something for everyone throughout July and August, so bring your towels, blankets and lawn chairs, kick back and enjoy!
The Tinhorn Creek Canadian Concert Series
This music series has become an annual tradition for locals and tourists alike. Set among the backdrop of lush vineyards, Tinhorn Creek is a beautiful vineyard just 20 minutes from Watermark and the annual Canadian Concert Series has gained a reputation for hosting some of the best musicians our country has to offer.
Tickets range in price from $30-45 and you can even purchase a shuttle pass that will pick you up from our Osoyoos resort and safely deliver you home to your luxury suite at the end of the night for only $20! Check out the complete lineup and dates for this year’s Tinhorn Creek Canadian Concert Series.
Concerts at The Gristmill & Gardens
Located in nearby Keremeos, the Gristmill & Gardens is a historic site that will be offering live music on select dates from late June through September. Musical guests include folk, old-time, celtic, and other unique genres, creating a special evening among the backdrop of the historic 1877 waterwheel-powered flour mill.
Guests are encouraged to bring their blankets and low-rise beach chairs to relax in. The doors open at 6:30 pm and the shows start at 7 pm, making for a great evening in the warm Okanagan sun. Tickets are available for $20 and you can find the concerts listed on our South Okanagan events calendar.
Hester Creek Music On The Patio
This Oliver winery showcases Okanagan musicians on Saturdays throughout the summer. There’s no cost for the concert, so it’s a great opportunity to relax on the patio with a glass of wine, local artisan cheeses, and other delicious snacks. The Hester Creek concerts go from 1-4 pm from June through September, giving guests a unique Okanagan summer experience.
