Kamloops is diverse, inclusive and love-positive.
Kamloops is ideally located between Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies and offers a warm welcome to LGBTQ2+ travellers. In all four seasons, this outdoor playground and unique landscape lends to the soft adventurer. The vibrant downtown boasts a myriad of local flavours, showcases seasonal events and embraces arts and culture.
Celebrate LGBTQ2+ culture with Kamloops Pride Week every August. The week’s roster of dances, parties, comedy, drag, youth focussed events, and of course, the annual pride parade is a true celebration of inclusivity and diversity. Pride Week is organized by Kamloops Pride to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer/questioning and two-spirit (LGBTQ2S+) people in the Kamloops area.
Kamloops is home to the new Thompson Valley Wine Region, 5 craft breweries and a new craft cidery. Experience Kamloops community with several annual events including Brewloops, the Kamloops Film Festival, and the Kamloops Wine Festival.
