When we say we are from somewhere, we identify different things with that place. Often the collective identity of a place revolves around some event or fact that the locals are proud to promote.

For some regions, it revolves around sports teams; for others, it is all about what the area offers.

Vernon is an exceptional destination for a summer event like the Okanagan Military Tattoo. There is so much to do here year-round, there is so much to be proud of when it comes to our vibrant community, and so much to boast about when it comes to the stunning landscape surrounding our beautiful city.

The winter carnival’s hot air balloon glow event is unique and amazing to experience. Outdoor activities are abundant, as are the arts and culture events. The spring and summer are just as busy, and the Okanagan Military Tattoo draws large crowds from all over BC, Alberta and beyond.

Spreading the word about Vernon and all it has to offer can be attributed mainly to Tourism Vernon.

Not only does Tourism Vernon promote events like the Winter Carnival and the Okanagan Military Tattoo, it also provide invaluable knowledge about the Okanagan Valley, its towns, industry, and trade.

If you plan to attend this year’s Okanagan Military Tattoo, visit  Tourism Vernon’s website.  It is an amazing resource for learning all the best places to stay and things to do while you are in Vernon for the July 29 – 30 weekend.

The Okanagan Military Tattoo has much to be thankful for in our partnership with Tourism Vernon. With its efforts and hard work, our event has gained worldwide recognition.

We are part of the Okanagan Valley and Vernon identity due in no small part to these fantastic people who work so hard to make our home a destination hot-spot.

So when you’re coming to Vernon for the Tattoo this year, remember to mention the Tourism Vernon group to your friends so they can find a great place to stay and take in the Tattoo with you!

The Okanagan Military Tattoo tickets are now on sale. We look forward to seeing you there!
