Farmers & Crafters Market

 

Every Sunday walk, bike, drive or boat your way to Peachland's Heritage Park on Okanagan Lake for the Peachland Farmers & Crafters Market.

Our vendors and local artisans offer their customers "made, baked, grown and unique" products.

 

The Market has much to catch your eye, scavenger hunts for kids and scheduled special events. Heritage Park, right beside the day wharf on Beach Avenue, is very spacious with picnic areas, the Rotary Pavilion and a great playground. See you Sundays!

The Peachland Rotary Club produces a series of free concerts dedicated to World Peace in Heritage Park at the Rotary Pavilion. Concerts take place on select Sunday afternoons in July and August. 

 

Audiences have topped 300 and were generous with donations going to purchase Shelter Boxes to be used around the world wherever natural disasters make families homeless. See the schedule on the Peachland Rotary Club website.

Peachland Museum

 

The unique 8-sided Peachland Baptist Church was constructed, mainly by volunteers, in 1910 and served as a place of worship until 1964. Over the years it has functioned as a temporary Municipal Hall, Parks and Recreation Office, Fire Brigade Hall and Public Library. Since 1980 the building has housed the Peachland Museum.

 

Hundreds of historical artifacts, photographs, newspapers and documents are on display. Together, they offer a glimpse into the rich history of Peachland and its people. The upper floor of the Museum houses a scale model of the Kettle Valley Railway, as it existed between 1955 and 1965, built and maintained by the Central Okanagan Railway Co.

Peachland Historic Mural

 

The Peachland Historic Mural is painted on the retaining wall where a bedrock bump once extended into the lake. During the highway construction in 1937 dynamite blasting sent two boulders crashing through the roof of Walter's Packinghouse below. The packers were busy on the wharf so luckily no one was hurt.

 

The mural artist was Peachland resident Robyn Lake; it was sponsored by the Peachland Rotary Club. It shows Hardy Falls, the Wharf, the Packinghouse and downtown scenes of the past and present.
