Who-Ville is on the move. As promised, Who-Ville is so excited to announce that they have the support of Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc to welcome you to the Powwow Arbour in December. If you have not yet been to Who-Ville Kamloops, you need to know that it is not a destination, but an experience. It is families and friends enjoying some time together.
Come hang out with The Mayor of Whoville, his wife, the Grinch, Cindy-Lou, and Max the Dog. The entry fee to Whoville is simply a new or gently used Children’s book for Literacy in Kamloops. Cash donations for Literacy in Kamloops are also accepted. Make memories with us as the original cartoon version of the Grinch plays on a large screen. Keep a look out for the Grinch as he creates havoc around you. All books and cash donations go directly to Literacy in Kamloops. It is roughly a half hour experience.

With the generous sharing of this location by Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc Who-Ville Kamloops is teaming up with Daybreak Rotary, Warner rentals and Interior Display to make this a December Family event unlike any other. For them, it began to make people smile, and to create a family memory at Christmas. It’s become a tradition. This is finally the right time to make a move and turn this into the wonderous event it can and will be.
The ability to put this in a controlled safe space at the Powwow Arbour is such a positive move for them. The opportunity for everyone to all be together, to enjoy each other's families, to support literacy, and to be able to grow this Christmas tradition is so empowering. What an opportunity to all be together, to make memories together, and to really enjoy the opportunities we are given!
Also, watch for them in the downtown Kamloops Santa Parade on November 27th and at the North Shore BIA Christmas Community Celebration at 4 pm on December 3rd.
Join them as they move Who-Ville down the road in 2022 to become one of Kamloops’ favourite Christmas family traditions, while supporting the community and building memories together.
