While you may know Osoyoos as your friendly, small town, home-away-from-home, our little community knows how to celebrate in a big way! This year, the 68th Annual Cherry Fiesta helps celebrate Canada Day with a day that’s packed full of activities and ends with the best Canada Day fireworks in B.C.
Treat Yourself at Rotary Pancake Breakfast
The Rotary Club is hosting a pancake breakfast on Canada Day from 7 AM – 11 AM. Families are encouraged to bring the kids for delicious pancakes and warm hospitality at the Osoyoos Town Square. This delicious breakfast costs $5.
Watch the 68th Cherry Fiesta Parade
Starting at 11 AM, main street Osoyoos will be flooded with the fantastic ‘Cherry Fiesta Parade’. In the past, the Cherry Fiesta Parade has included a spectacular water fight, unicyclists, and firemen in tights! Bring the kids and discover what this year has in store.
Keep Cool and Entertained at Osoyoos Legion Hall
If you’re looking to escape the South Okanagan sunshine, you can visit the Osoyoos Legion Hall where Canada Day festivities will be hosted from 11 AM – 8 PM. Activities include a beer garden, beef on a bun, a meat draw, 50/50, and a variety of entertainment.
Eat, Drink & Listen to Music at Gyro Beach
Gyro Beach activities start at noon and will include craft and food venues, Elks Beer Garden, cherry pie eating, and a Cherry Pit Spit competition (our own Ingrid Jarrett was one of the winners last year!).

Live music and entertainment at the Gyro Beach Bandshell includes performances by Kettle Valley Brakeman, Cindy Doucette, Rebel Luv, and Rumble 100. Dance Oasis, a performing arts school in the heart of Osoyoos, will also be taking to the stage at 1:30 PM.
Bask in the Light of BC’s Largest Canada Day Fireworks!
Starting at dusk (approximately 10 PM) everyone is welcomed to join Osoyoos in one of the largest firework displays in BC! Truly a community effort, Osoyoos’ firework display is a result of a group of volunteers who fundraise, order and orchestrate the entire display. In 2014, more than $70,000 was raised from the local community!
