Events SilverStar Annual Light Up

We are excited to bring to life a re-imagined Christmas Light Up experience. This year we are forgoing the usual fireworks and performance timeline, and creating a “walk through light display and vendor showcase highlighting both SilverStar and Okanagan offerings” in a Christmas Market and Exhibition setting.


Join us for a night of fun to kick off the winter and holiday season. We'll have fun for the whole family: everything from local crafts and talents, light displays, roaming entertainers, gondola rides, photo opportunities and more!
