Attention, country lovers! Canada’s Country Music Week might be in Edmonton this year, but BC residents can officially mark their calendars for September 2025, because the country music event of the year is coming to Kelowna for the first time!

Every year, Country Music Week celebrates the best country talent in Canada with a giant music festival and awards ceremony. What’s more, 2025 marks the third time the annual event will be hosted in BC!

“Since 1977, Country Music Week has only twice been hosted in British Columbia, and what better city to welcome it back than Kelowna,” says Mayor Tom Dyas. “The city’s country music scene is a vibrant part of our community, and we look forward to showcasing our thriving cultural scene, and world-class hospitality while welcoming some of Canada’s most talented country artists.”
