With summer in the rearview mirror, fall adventure doesn’t have to say sayonara as well. Put on an extra layer and gear up for epic fun in Kamloops this fall. From weekend exploration with the family, date night, friends night out, or the perfect “me” time adventure, take advantage of the extended season with these must dos in Kamloops.
Sounds of Fall
Oh live music, how we’ve missed you! Celebrate its return with the Kamloops Symphony & Orchestra this fall season. On September 25 & 26, take in a moody and mischievous concerto for piano and trumpet paired with equally captivating and compelling works with Out Of The Silence. Or, get blown away with Windscapes on October 23 & 24, a concert of dazzling music by their wondrous wind players with no strings attached (almost). All live shows will take place at the Sagebrush Theatre; online viewings are available for both concerts.
Weekend Family Escapades
Fall means back to school, back to routine and by the time Friday comes, the kids are climbing the walls in need of adventure. We’ve got your back. Head over to Fun & Games where the kids (big and little) can let some of that energy go with arcade games, virtual games, a little game of pool and more. Make it a friendly competition and see who can win the highest amount of tickets and walk away with the most or biggest prizes at the end!
Cougars and wolves, and bears, oh my! Let your littles be “wild” at the BC Wildlife Park where they can explore and learn about over 65 wildlife species found in British Columbia and across the country (it’s a win-win situation for you!). Print off their scavenger hunt game and see how many icons and animals you can find on your visit. Be sure to stop in before the grizzly bears and black bears go into winter denning and hibernation - they may even be up to some quirky antics… Did you see Clover sitting high on a stump?

Stuff Your Face
Brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert, cocktails… Cordo Resto + Bar has got it all… no need to get hangry. Located at the Delta Hotel by Marriott, Cordo is serving up regionally-inspired dishes to satisfy the foodies’ taste buds - did you say Parmesan Gnocchi and Smoked Trout? If you fancy a cocktail, expert mixologists switch up their cocktail list infused with local flavours for each season like the Rose Garden Cocktail featuring Harper’s Trail Rosé. If you didn’t know, they were the first spot in Kamloops to serve up gin flights, so be sure to indulge in one of their innovative creations.

Catch Some Zzz's
Conveniently located on the main street of downtown Kamloops, catch some zzz’s at the Delta Hotel by Marriott. Soak up the fall sun from their rooftop pool and hottub while sipping on a crafted cocktail made by their expert mixologists, or check out their fitness facility, grab ‘n go bar, and central location. Within steps of the lobby, find yourself stuffing your face with local cuisine, baked goodies, and specialty coffees. Make sure you have at least one hand free to carry all those shopping bags from the local, boutique stores.
Situated in uptown Kamloops, the Wingate by Wyndham is minutes from Aberdeen Mall, and surrounded by a unique mix of locally-owned restaurants. Being one of Kamloops’ newest hotels, your stay at the Wingate is efficiently efficient - free hot breakfast, a business center, indoor pool and hot tub, and a 24-hour fitness center. Forgot that pesky toothpaste? No worries, their convenience store is stocked with all the on-the-go essentials. If you’re traveling with your furry companion (limited pet-friendly rooms) or sustainably in a Tesla or EV, they got you covered too.
