With the atmosphere and content of an old-fashioned country fair, right in the heart of beautiful downtown Peachland, this is a September event not to be missed. Now is your opportunity to bake or preserve something, plant some seeds to nurture, crochet or knit something, quilt, carve or build, and take photographs. You might even win a prize!
September 25 | 10am-3pm
Experience the tastes of food and beverages produced and/or processed by local vendors. Take a stroll into the field adjacent to our mill to take in the ploughing competition or take a step back in time to enjoy the vintage tractor display and demonstrations, an antique threshing machine at work, or treats from the clay bake oven.
September 3rd-24th | 8:30am-1:30pm
The Downtown Penticton Association hosts the weekly Downtown Community Market, located along Main and Front Streets and Backstreet Boulevard. Rain or shine (May to mid-October) the Downtown Community Market brings Penticton to life each Saturday from 8:30 a.m. until the early afternoon. Each season Penticton’s regular marketeers and visitors alike are delighted with the hundreds of vendors who feature handmade goods including clothing, food, and jewelry, collectibles, antiques and furniture, as well as the weekly food vendors, live music and entertainment that combine to create a fabulous downtown vibe.
Now until October 30th
As of July 21st, our corn maze is up and running! Bring your family, friends, and guests to traverse the maze together or challenge yourself to see how fast you can finish it! Each year the maze changes so don’t expect to be an expert just yet. Admission to the maze is $5/person and you may complete it multiple times in the same day!
Not only are Fun things happening all over the Okanagan, but our residents will have their hands full this fall with a packed activities schedule. Below are the fun things enriched retirees living in Regency have to look forward to in these next few months:
- Oktoberfest, celebrated every year between September 17th and October 3, will be a fun event for Residents to enjoy with their peers and families. Resorts all over the Okanagan are set to celebrate beer and the Bavarian culture together. Fit with pretzels and cheese dip, you too can make this Oktoberfest one to remember!
- Halloween is done in a big way throughout Regency. Across the Okanagan, residents dress up in their spookiest, whackiest, or downright cutest costumes and show up to fun parties and gatherings. Elementary school students normally stop in and show off their costumes while trick-or-treating and singing. Halloween is a wonderful time to celebrate with fellow residents and staff alike.
- While some residents will go away for the Thanksgiving holiday, others choose to stay in the resort, either inviting their families to join them or eating their festive feast with their Regency family. Regency does thanksgiving in a big way with a LARGE holiday meal fit for an amazing finish to the long weekend.
- Each resort will be featuring various events across their individual activities calendars this fall. Happy hours are always a common occurrence with some resorts adding evening concerts into the mix. Other fun events residents can look forward to are the exciting trips to wineries, farmers’ markets, orchards, and many more fun places. Stop in and see us enjoy a fun fall event and see what enriched retirement is all about.
